A man who tried to hide his weapon in a Holy Bible was shocked when
officers in Brooklyn found the Glock handgun and ammunition hidden amongst the leather-bound holy book during a traffic on Monday.

Officials said The Glock 17, a magazine and 10 bullets were locked inside the bible safe, officials said.

According the the New York Daily News, officers with the NYPD approached the car at 2.30am, and indicated there was a strong smell of marijuana, they said.

A search of the vehicle was conducted, uncovered the drug, a gravity knife and the concealed weapon.

The book appeared to contain the King James versions of the Old and New Testament, but was in fact a locked, hollowed-out case to hold the gun, officials said.

Andre Allen, 32, Satina Ferguson, 21, and 24-year-old DeShawn Thompson were all taken into custody where they were charged with two counts of weapons possession and unlawful possession of marijuana, according to officials.

Deputy Inspector Richard DiBlasio, the commanding officer of the 70th Precinct, hailed the arrest in a Tweet.

‘#70pct PO Rolffot & team arrested a perp for gun hidden in Bible!’ he wrote. ‘The dangers our officers encounter. #NYPD.’
