A police raid on a storage unit in Fort Greene on Monday led to the arrest of three men and the seizure of several guns, more than a dozen all-terrain vehicles, and a whole bunch of hard drugs, according to the authorities.

Officers obtained a search warrant for the storage locker on Carlton Avenue between Flushing and Park Avenues after stopping a guy who was driving an off–road vehicle on the sidewalk, according to a statement. They made the bust at 6:30 pm, finding 4 loaded firearms and 14 all-terrain vehicles and dirt bikes, officers said. Police also searched a 2007 Nissan Altima and netted 500 bags of heroin and $8,000 cash, all stored in a hidden trapdoor, cops said.

Officers arrested a 22-year-old Bedford-Stuyvesant man and a 21-year-old and 26-year-old from Williamsburg and charged them all with weapons possession and drug possession, police said.
