Long-range weapons, handguns, a camouflage helmet and night googles were also among the materials seized. According to the report, senior law enforcement officials say that the individuals are “gun enthusiasts” and have no connection to terror. The suspects are believed to be from Pennsylvania. A source told NBC4 that the Joint Terrorism Task Force is assisting in the investigation, but officials have declared that there is no known terror threat.
WNBC adds that drugs were found in the car along with the weapons, per one law enforcement official, and one of the individuals allegedly claimed that the trio was on their way to Queens, New York to attempt to save a friend “being held against her will” as a heroin user. According to the news outlet, police are searching for the woman as investigators look into whether the trio was planning to “shoot a rival drug dealer”.
