(FOX NEWS) – Three people were arrested when police discovered a weapons cache in a vehicle headed to New York City during a search at the Holland Tunnel on Tuesday, officials confirmed to Fox News.

Authorities arrested two men, aged 50 and 53, and a 29-year-old woman after finding multiple weapons — some loaded — including rifles and handguns in their vehicle, described by a law enforcement source as a “jacked up SUV.” Ballistic vests and a camouflage helmet were also found in the vehicle, NBC4 reported.

A spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Kelly Langmesser, told Reuters that counter-terrorism agents weren’t involved and the case didn’t have a “terrorism nexus.”
“If it’s not terrorism, it’s criminal,” a source told Fox News.

The trio, from Pennsylvania, initially was stopped by Port Authority Police at a toll plaza for a cracked windshield at 7:40 a.m., authorities said. An officer saw the weapons in plain view on the passenger side of the vehicle.
