By  | 

A gun found inside the home of a murder suspect was loaded with bullets that investigators said are the same type used in at least three murders.

The gun and ammunition are among 86 items investigators seized from the home of Samuel Cooper.

The 30-year-old Cooper is facing five counts of first-degree murder in a string of crimes in the Raleigh area dating back to May 2006. He was arrested last month after a robbery in Garner.

Police also found a black security jacket, ski mask, a bank bag, duct tape, white nylon rope and nine cell phones, six of which did not work.

Police wouldn't comment on the seized items. A police spokesman said the list speaks for itself.
