    San Leandro crime twist: Assault rifles made to resemble toy guns found in raid

    Police at the Marina Boulevard house found two partially assembled AK-47 assault rifles with orange plastic tips on their barrels, making the weapons look like toy guns. The colored tips are put on toy guns that otherwise so resemble real weapons that police have mistaken them for deadly threats.

    "It is frightening to know that AK-47 assault rifles capable of penetrating body armor worn by law enforcement officers were made to look like toys," said San Leandro police spokesman Lt. Robert McManus.

    Police said 30-year-old Tony Ho, who was leaving the house when they arrived, also had three AR-15 assault rifles with several parts lacking serial numbers and illegally modified to accept 30-round magazines.
    there is a twist, real guns being made to look fake?
