BLOOMING GROVE — Police say they found three guns and dozens of rounds of ammunition, along with maps, candles and survival gear in an abandoned airplane hangar near where Pennsylvania ambush suspect Eric Frein was captured last week.

Search warrant documents released Wednesday list more than 100 items recovered from the Birchwood-Pocono Airpark hangar, including a bolt-action rifle, a sniper rifle and a loaded pistol.

They also recovered five magazines and more than 200 rounds of ammunition.

Frein surrendered to U.S. marshals on Thursday following a 48-day manhunt. He was located in an open field near the former airpark.

Frein is charged with opening fire on the Blooming Grove state police barracks Sept. 12, killing one trooper and seriously wounding a second. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
