Three people were arrested near the Holland Tunnel on Tuesday after numerous loaded weapons were discovered inside their vehicle, a Port Authority spokesman said.
According to the spokesman, the trio was stopped at the New Jersey toll plaza around 7:40 a.m. after police noticed the vehicle had a cracked windshield. It wasn’t immediately clear which direction the vehicle was headed.
Upon further investigation, police found a cache of rifles and handguns, some of them loaded, the spokesman said. Bulletproof vests were also discovered, according to published reports.
Two men in their 50s and a woman in her 20s were arrested at the scene, according to the Port Authority.
