Mexican police have confiscated a large weapons cache stashed in a hidden room behind the walls of a home gym in a house in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from the U.S. city of El Paso, Texas.

Police say the uncovered arsenal, in what is likely a drug safehouse, included machine guns, grenades, clips for high powered guns, gas masks, bulletproof vests and military uniforms. The Associated Press reports anti-aircraft guns and three money-counting machines were also found.

Police searched the house after receiving an anonymous tip.

Mexican officials say no one was arrested during the operation.
