ARMED police were called to a house in Yate after a man was seen posing with suspected firearms on social media site Snapchat.
An Avon and Somerset police spokesperson said a search was carried out in Westerleigh Road on July 11 "after officers were given intelligence that someone at the property may have been in possession of firearms".
The spokesperson added: "Officers found a number of BB guns, an air weapon and a gas-powered gun.
