LOS ANGELES (AP) - A man has been arrested on suspicion of illegally selling weapons after authorities seized more than 200 firearms, plastic explosive and a machine gun from his Riverside County home.

The California Department of Justice said 30-year-old Victor Christian Robles face a number of state firearms violations following Thursday night's raid on his Eastvale home.

The items seized include a fully automatic Uzi-style submachine gun, plastic explosive, grenade fuses, more than 100 handguns, 60 rifles and an additional 40 weapons that fall under California's definition of restricted assault rifles.

Department spokesman Nicholas Pacilio said Robles was dealing firearms, but there was no immediate indication that he intended to harm anyone.

Robles posted $150,000 bail.

It wasn't known whether he has retained an attorney.
