Seattle police seize guns, samurai sword from accused stalker; suspect charged with perjury for lying to police

King County prosecutors say a 31-year-old Seattle man lied about the weapons arsenal he had stashed inside his Belltown apartment following his arrest earlier this month for allegedly stalking one of his neighbors.

Police seized three assault-style rifles, a shotgun, two handguns, high-capacity magazines, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and a samurai sword, among other items, from a 31-year-old man's Belltown apartment after he was ordered by a judge to surrender any weapons but claimed he didn't have any.
