NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police have discovered a cache of guns and ammunition in a rental car during a street stop.

Police say officers in an unmarked car stopped a Chevy Malibu on Wednesday evening in Brooklyn because it appeared the driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. The car was a rental but wasn’t registered to anyone in the car. Officers noticed a woman in the back had a knife.

Officers searched the car and discovered an assault rifle, a shotgun, three semi-automatic handguns, high-capacity magazines and 100 rounds of hollow-tip bullets and armor piercing ammunition.

The driver and two passengers have been arrested. They’re being held on weapons charges.
