Police find 12-gauge, rifle, and more than 100 rounds at George Zimmerman’s girlfriend’s home

Authorities found more than 100 rounds of ammunition and several firearms while searching the home of George Zimmerman’s girlfriend, while Zimmerman himself identified himself as homeless to police.

CNN reported on Monday that a search of Samantha Scheibe’s residence by police revealed that Zimmerman possessed a rifle, three handguns, 106 rounds of ammunition — including two magazines for an AR-15 assault rifle — a pocket knife and a 12-gauge shotgun, among other items.

The search followed a judge’s order barring Zimmerman from possessing any weapons followinghis Nov. 18 arrest on aggravated assault and battery charges against Scheibe. Zimmerman pleaded not guilty and is free on bail. Zimmerman has also been barred from being in contact with Scheibe or from leaving Central Florida. He is expected back in court on Jan. 7.

According to WKMG-TV, Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder charges in July in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, told authorities he was homeless and unemployed, and did not provide an emergency contact. He listed attorney Mark O’Mara, who represented him in the Martin case, as his address.

A public defender representing Zimmerman in the current case against him filed a motion on Monday seeking to have his mobile phone and knife returned to him, arguing that, “These items collected were not related to the charges in any way and are not considered evidence in this matter.”

106 rounds?  That's it?  Got more than that in the bottom of the junk drawer in our kitchen (22lr boxes break too easy)

2 guns and a little bit of ammo?  wow.  So, he had enough ammo to go target shooting one day.  Might have lasted for 2 days if he is a fairly good shot.  106 rounds is nothing to get excited about.

People are seriously obsessed with trying to rip this man to shreds with no evidence.

I do nto think that is alot of ammo, imo, this very unstable man does not need to have a weapon anywhere around him:/

STILL doesn't make him guilty.

So he's above the law?

Seems that Nov 25 is post Nov 18- hopefully he's had no access to those items.

Because all those numbers are greater than zero- the sum total is he allowed by law to possess.

Wow, that's a fraction of what we have. So what?!?!?

106 rounds of ammo is only a big deal to someone who has no clue on guns.

I'm not surprised, that guns and ammo were found.  I'm surprised that it wasn't more.

2 days? That would last me just a couple of hours.
