NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD says officers who pulled over a car for a minor violation discovered powerful weapons and ammunition inside.

When the driver couldn’t produce any papers, he was ordered to step outside. That’s when police observed a large straight edge knife on the floor of the car.

As they continued to search, police discovered a 9mm machine gun, two high capacity magazines - one loaded with 19 9mm rounds - about 100 other caliber rounds plus two stun guns.

The driver, Harvey McManus of Brooklyn, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a loaded firearm and other charges.

Police say he initially was stopped for excessively tinted windows.



It wasn’t immediately known if McManus had a lawyer.
