(BLOOMINGTON) - A Bloomington woman walking her dog Monday night through an alley off West Fourth Street in Bloomington noticed something strange -- three rifles poking out of some bushes.

Bloomington police say it looked like the weapons had been in the bushes for some time because they were really rusty - so rusty officers couldn't see the full serial numbers on the guns.

The rifles were - a loaded .22 long rifle, an unloaded .30-06, and an unloaded Mauser rifle.

Since the guns couldn't be traced by their serial numbers due to the rust damage, they've been booked into evidence.

Anyone with information about the weapons is asked to call the Bloomington Police Department at (812) 339-4477.
