SALT LAKE CITY — Three people were arrested, two dozen guns seized and a number of drugs recovered by Salt Lake City police early Wednesday.

Just after midnight, members of the SWAT team and Salt Lake narcotics detectives served a search warrant at 845 N. Sir Patrick Drive. Of the 26 guns recovered — both long guns and handguns — six were confirmed to be stolen, according to police. Meth, heroin, marijuana and cocaine was also found in the house, police stated.

Tetlo Goings, 59, Zelo Goings, 55, and Tresa Nicole Morris, 36, were arrested for investigation of a number of charges including drug distribution, possession of stolen firearms, possession of firearms by a restricted person, drug possession and outstanding warrants.

According to a Salt Lake County Jail booking report, Zelo Goings "stated he is actively cooking cocaine in order to make crack." Goings was sentenced to Utah State Prison in November 2017 for a conviction of drug distribution, court records state, and has drug-related convictions in Utah dating back to 2006.

In Tetlo Goings' room, in addition to drugs, police found "15 firearms were located in the same room. Two of the firearms were confirmed stolen," a jail report states.

The city health department declared the house uninhabitable, according to police.
