Cops raiding a Queens home Thursday found a small arsenal of guns and ammo.
Officers hauled off 16 rifles, a crossbow and 13,000 rounds of ammunition around 9:34 a.m. from the Queens Village house of Keith Harvey, 44, a contractor.
Bullets were packed into metal military-like ammo boxes or still in the original packaging.
Cops also found a ballistic vest, numerous high-capacity clips and a knuckle knife.
Among the weapons were three assault rifles — including a Fabrique Nationale model with a 50-round clip and two AK-47-style guns.
Harvey, who has no prior criminal record, was charged with multiple count of illegal weapons possession.
“Illegal firearms pose an extreme risk to the public, and in Queens County creating your own warehouse of lethal shotguns and rifles will not be tolerated,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
He was arraigned Friday and bail was set at $150,000. Harvey remains jailed at Vernon Bain Center until his next court date May 11.
Harvey’s friend and neighbor, Joe Russo, 50, said there was no reason for all the alarm.
“These allegations are insane,” he said. “He is a gun collector. His father was one too. He gave him the guns. It’s amazing what some people will come up with. He’s a hardworking man who has never been in trouble.”
Some of the weapons and ammo were found in Harvey’s gun safe in his dining room.
It was the third arrest in the past two weeks of a person with a huge cache of illegal weapons in their home.
On April 16, cops found 70 guns and 50,000 bullets in the Bayside home of a man named Ronald Drabman.
They found an AK-47 rifle, two Colt AR-15 rifles, five Bushmaster XM-15 rifles and an Uzi submachine gun in Drabman’s home.
Cops believe Drabman was a collector.
