SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) -- Police in Springfield, Ore., say they've located some relatives of a 73-year-old man who died at home this week, leaving a gun collection worth about half a million dollars.

Police say more than 100 firearms were found inside the home of gun dealer Victor Bryan Fogle. A bomb squad also removed several hundred pounds of gunpowder from the house.

Officers initially said they hadn't been able to locate any heirs to his estate.

KEZI-TV reports that after news of Fogle's death spread, investigators got calls from several of the man's cousins in Oregon.

Fogle died of natural causes Wednesday.
