(CNN) -

Two Iowa men were arrested and charged in Massachusetts.

Detectives in Massachusetts say they received and executed a search warrant for the suspect vehicle.
 
Once they searched, detectives recovered one 12-gauge Remington shotgun, one DPM5 Model AR-15 rifle, several hundred rounds of ammunition, and a hunting knife. 

An arrest warrant was issued for the two suspects.

With the assistance of the Saugus Police Department, BPD detectives located and arrested the suspects at a Saugus hotel.  

18-year-old Kevin Norton and 27-year-old James Stumbo, both of Iowa, were arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, and other firearm related charges. 

The suspects will be arraigned at Boston Municipal Court.

"The relationship between police and private sector security is important in both our community policing philosophy, as well as our counter-terrorism strategy. 

This incident is a good example of private security reaching out to their local Boston police district and relaying information to detectives and BRIC analysts in order to identify the very real threat. The BPD detectives did a great job in the stop and prevention of a potential tragedy,” said BPD Bureau of Intelligence and Analysis Commander Superintendent Paul Fitzgerald.
