This is without a doubt the craziest story of the week. Yesterday, Monday June 20th, three people were caught transporting an absurd amount of weapons and drugs from Pennsylvania to New York City. Thankfully, the car was pulled over due to a cracked windshield on the New Jersey side of the Holland Tunnel. According to NBC News:
“The three individuals, two men in their 50s and a woman in her 20s from Pennsylvania, were stopped on the new Jersey side of the tunnel around 8 a.m., authorities said. A search of their vehicle revealed the weapons cache. The guns seized included long-range weapons as well as handguns. A camouflaged helmet with what appeared to be night goggles were also recovered.”
A search of their vehicle — a brightly colored Dodge utility vehicle with logo decals for Tonka, Monster energy drinks and another one that read “Higher Ground Tactical”, apparently a gun range and shop in Emmaus, Pennsylvania — revealed the weapons cache.
Police referred to the suspects as “gun enthusiasts” and emphasized that they didn’t pose a threat to the general public. The accused claimed that they were heading to Queens in order to save a kidnapped girl who was on heroin.
How noble?? If their claims turn out to be true, then there are so many questions that need to be answered. What did they expect was going to happen? A Michael Bay-esque shootout between drug dealers from Queens and Pennsylvanian hillbillies? They were going to hunt a heroin dealer yet also had drugs on them? WTF?
We can all agree the most important factor is that no one was seriously hurt. It’ll be quite interesting to see how bizarre plays out.
Oh, and here’s the car they were in. In the traffic queue to the Holland Tunnel, it had to literally look like the redneck ammosexual version of the famous Ghostbusters car. Pretty conspicuous, guys.
