Three people have been arrested outside a New York City tunnel after police found a huge cache of weapons in their vehicle.

The heavily-armed trio were on their way into the city in the Holland Tunnel when they were stopped.

Officers then found multiple loaded guns, rifles, knives, ballistic vests and a camouflage helmet.

When questioned, they described themselves as self-styled vigilantes, according to reports.

A picture of the fluorescent Dodge truck believed to be involved shows it covered with logos related to Higher Ground Tactical – a gun range based in Emmaus, Pennsylvania.

A sign in the back window reads: ‘We The People’.

It is not known how they are associated to the suspects.

When Daily Mail Online reached them by phone, they said they had heard something about the arrest but couldn’t comment any further.

Around 2,000 rounds of ammunition were also discovered inside, according to reports.  One of the gun clips had ‘America’ written on and another had ‘United We Stand’.

The three individuals, two men in their 50s and a woman in her 20s who may be from Pennsylvania, were stopped on the New Jersey side of the tunnel around 8am, officials told NBC4.

Reports suggest they were initially pulled over for a cracked windshield.
