DETROIT (AP) — A man told investigators that he was making $2,000 a day selling marijuana from a vending machine attached to his Detroit home, federal agents said.

The man, who has a felony record, was arrested last week and charged with illegally possessing guns. The FBI said he explained how he made a living when they arrived in March with a search warrant.

Agents were aware of the machine because they had made purchases to collect evidence in February and March.

Agents discovered 18 firearms throughout the house, dozens of rounds of ammunition and several pounds of suspected marijuana. The man was released on bond by a federal magistrate judge.
