Cops: Loaded gun found in hollowed-out box resembling Bible

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say they found a loaded gun inside a hollowed-out lockbox that resembles the Bible during a traffic stop.

According to the New York Post (http://bit.ly/1EoMNTq ), the container looked like a leather-bound King James Bible. But instead of the word of God, it contained a loaded Glock 17, 10 bullets and a magazine.

Officers made the discovery early Monday in Brooklyn after pulling over a car with tinted windows.

Police say they searched the car after smelling a strong odor of marijuana. They also found an open alcohol container and a knife.

The driver and two passengers were charged with weapon and marijuana possession.

This story has been corrected to show that the box resembled the King James, not St. James, Bible.
