Police raided a Lake Charles home in Port St. Lucie early Thursday morning and arrested two people.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, along with Port St. Lucie police and the Drug Enforcement Agency served a search warrant at a house in the 800 block of SW Munjack Circle.

Police said they found heroin, crack cocaine, Fentanyl tablets, cannabis and other drugs as well as 15 handguns, 7 rifles and nearly 5,000 rounds of ammunition.  

Law enforcement was seen carrying what appeared to be evidence from the home and boxes from vehicles parked in the driveway.

The residence, which is north of Crosstown Parkway and east of I-95, is in a gated community.

A view from Chopper 5 showed damage to windows in the home.

Police said they arrested 31-year-old Brett Joseph Nicholson of Port St. Lucie. They said he faces charges of trafficking heroin, possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of more than 20-grams of marijuana, possession of a harmful new legend drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police also arrested 39-year-old Jorge Luis Annexy of Port St. Lucie. He faces charges of possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana under 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

On Friday, Annexy's bond was set at $35,000. He also faces drug charges in Palm Beach County from March 2017.

Nicholson was not in court Friday.
