Secaucus police found loaded guns in the car of the Georgia man in the Sam’s Club parking lot on Sunday.
Joseph White of Loganville, Georgia was seen sleeping in the car when police were called to check on him. After confirming White was OK, officers Kiril Petrov and Dillion Genatt noticed the car had fake license plates and investigated further, eventually seeing the butt of a loaded .357 Magnum underneath the driver’s seat.
In the ensuing search, the officers also found a .38 special/.357 Magnum “lever action” rifle and more than 100 rounds of handgun ammunition.
The 28-year-old White was charged with two counts of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, possession of hollow point bullets, unlawful possession of a handgun, unlawful possession of a rifle and unlawful transport of firearms.
