Three travelers with loaded guns stopped at Holland Tunnel: NBC 4 New York

Three people with multiple loaded guns and knives were arrested Tuesday at the Holland Tunnel, authorities told NBC 4 New York.

Police stopped the individuals for driving with a cracked windshield at around 8 a.m. EDT on the New Jersey side of the tunnel, the authorities told NBC's New York affiliate.

A search of their brightly colored Dodge utility vehicle revealed the store of weapons, the media outlet reported. Two senior law enforcement officials told NBC 4 New York that the three suspects are "gun enthusiasts" and have no links to terror.

NBC 4 New York also reported that one of the suspects allegedly told authorities the trio was going to Queens to attempt to save a friend being held against her will. Police are looking for the possible woman in Queens, according to the media outlet.

One law enforcement official also told NBC 4 New York there were drugs in the car as well. The truck was impounded after the stop, the news organization said.
