The husband of the witness who first alerted authorities tells News 9 his wife worked for weeks with the sheriff's office until they had enough information to take down the man. Several neighbors say has been a big problem for them since he moved in.

"He was laying right here so he was well hidden. And he had his gun pointed up there," said neighbor, Fay Sitts,

Sitts says when she let her dogs out, she found her neighborhood surrounded by a tactical team with their guns drawn.

"He said ‘Well, we are going to make a bust up here on the hill and I'd just rather you stay inside and lock the door, you know, so you won't be hurt.' He said ‘We've got the perimeter surrounded,'" said Sitts.

Deputies were after 52-year-old Lloyd O'Hagan. They got a tip that he was storing weapons and dealing drugs in the quiet neighborhood.

Authorities fired several rounds of pepper-spray into O'Hagan's home. They say he finally came out after 20 minutes.

"There were several things recovered, including 14 firearms, 865 rounds of live ammunition, a police scanner that was tuned to the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, and security cameras around the house," said Sheriff, John Whetsel.

Sitts isn't surprised it came to this. She says the neighborhood suspected something was up with O'Hagan a while ago.

"We thought he was selling drugs because you don't have that much traffic between about two and four in the morning," said Sitts.

O'Hagan is being held on $200,000 bond on charges of possession of stolen property, possession of drug paraphernalia and five counts of possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.
