A man whose 50 guns were seized when police found him watching a Bloomington bar where an Indiana University student was partying the night she went missing is asking a court to make police return his weapons.

The Indiana Court of Appeals will hear Robert Redington's appeal Tuesday.

Police have said they don't believe Redington was involved in the 2011 disappearance of Lauren Spierer.

Redington wasn't arrested last August when police found him watching the bar through a range finder and discovered two loaded semi-automatic handguns in his pockets and a loaded shotgun in the trunk of his car. Officers found another 48 weapons when they searched his Indianapolis home.

A judge allowed police to keep the firearms. Redington says police don't have enough evidence to keep the weapons.
