JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

This is not something you see every day.

On Thursday morning, authorities raided a Jackson convenience store at 905 W. Northside.

They tell us they are seizing all sorts of stolen material from the Express Fuel Food Mart.

Our crew on the scene says they've seen electronics removed from the building, and they've been told there are also a lot of stolen guns inside.

According to Deputy Chief Deric Hearn five people have been arrested in connection to this case. We're told they'll face charges of possession of stolen property and some drug possession charges.

Among the stranger items police say they found inside the store; a huge bag of what they believe is the narcotic opium.

We'll have much more on this story on all of our newscasts.
