Cops stopped a party bus in Brooklyn early Friday and discovered it was a rolling arsenal — recovering eight loaded handguns and arrested 14 people, including three juveniles, authorities said.
The bus, operated by Party Bus Express New York, was pulled over at Front Street near York Street in DUMBO around 12:30 a.m., after cops were alerted that occupants were posing with firearms and posting the photos on social media, according to police.
The 41 occupants were taken into custody for questioning, and 14 people were arrested — including 11 adult men and three boys.
Charges are pending, police said.
“Based on intelligence gathered by @NYPDPSA2 Youth Coordination Officers last night, Brooklyn North Violent Crimes Squad & @NYPD84Pct stopped a party bus in #DUMBO with passengers who were in possession of firearms,” the NYPD tweeted. “A total of 8 loaded handguns were recovered. Charges are pending.”
In total, 22 adults — 13 males and 9 females and 19 juveniles — 10 females and 9 males — were on the bus, according to police sources.
Police could not immediately say where the group was from or where they were headed.
“This is a very dangerous city,” said a high-ranking police source who provided information on the major bust.
