“ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – FBI agents raided the Kennedale home of Ryan Walker Grant and found 22 guns and more than 160 rounds of ammo, according to a search warrant.

Grant is accused of a murder-for-hire plot to kill Mayor Robert Cluck and a Dallas attorney.

Some of the weapons seized include, two 44-magnum handguns, five 45-caliber pistols and a Colt 454 Super Redhawk Alaskan, designed for defense against large and dangerous animals.

FBI Agents also seized two bullet proof vests and more than $145,000 in cash from Grant’s home.

Grant is the owner of Flashdancer. The Arlington strip club was shut down for a year as part of a nuisance lawsuit. According to investigators, Grant feared that Mayor Cluck and the city wanted to close the business permanently.

The federal complaint accuses Grant of approaching an unidentified middle man to pay Mexican hitmen $10,000 each to kill the mayor and Tom Brandt.

Brandt is a Dallas attorney who works with the city on cases involving strip clubs.”
