Along with the detainees, 3rd Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment Soldiers found one loaded AK-47 assault rifle and two loaded handguns, as well as a black ski mask. A search of a nearby house led to the discovery of multiple power switches commonly used in the construction of roadside bombs, along with an AK-47 assault rifle, two RPK light machine guns, multiple magazines for the three weapons and a set of body armor with ballistic plates.

The 3-1 Cavalry is assigned to the 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, from Fort Benning, Ga.
