Deep inside this military warehouse is an impressive collection of seized weapons.
More than 88,000 weapons are now in the hands of Mexican officers that came from brutal drug gangs. The heavily guarded facility includes guns ranging from handguns to rifles and AK-47's. The Associated Press recently got rare access to the seized weapons.
The warehouse is located in Mexico City and is surrounded by five rings of security, designed to prevent the weapons from getting back on the street.
In all, Mexico's military has more than 305,400 weapons locked away in vaults.
