Julia Fox’s father and brother, Thomas and Christopher Fox, were apprehended after cops discovered firearms and

“evidence of narcotics manufacturing,”

in their apartment in New York City, according to the New York Post. PageSix reports that the discovery and arrest left the actress shocked. The bust was made as a part of a bigger

“ghost gun investigation.” 

Following the raid, officials retrieved several ghost guns. If you’re unaware, ghost guns are guns that don’t contain trackable serial numbers. Officials also retrieved polymer material as well as 3D printers. Investigators managed to recover unidentified pills, pressure cookers, fentanyl, heroin, and tools used to create explosives. 

Both men were taken into custody and hit with multiple charges. 

NYPD confirmed that they searched the apartment of Fox’s relatives. 

A spokesperson said,

“The NYPD’s Ghost Gun Team seized several ghost gun parts as well as equipment for pressing narcotics pills.” 

“Team members also discovered materials typically used as components in explosives, including pressure cookers and various chemicals, which can also be used for manufacturing narcotics.” 

The spokesperson continued,

“At this time, the matter is believed to be contained, with no apparent nexus to terrorism… The NYPD will continue to fight relentlessly against illegal guns — against both the steady proliferation of traditionally-manufactured firearms and the increasingly prevalent numbers of illegal, untraceable but fully functioning weapons known as ghost guns.”

Officials were notified after reports of questionable online purchases were made and delivered to their address.
