    According to Suryono’s neighbor, Sari Hati (28), the long-barreled rifles and arrows have been owned by Suryono.

    “I thought it was just a toy weapon because the weapon was put on top of his closet,” Sari said, on Tuesday, July 10.

    After arresting Suryono, the police searched his rented house, sized 5x4 meters in Sukamulya area, where he lives with his wife and two children.

    “I couldn't even thought the idea that Suryono is a member of a terrorist organization,” she said.
