A Pennsylvania man has been charged with a weapons offense after his arrest at the entrance to the Holland Tunnel.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police say an officer noticed a pickup truck driving through the toll plaza Saturday evening with a large, blue plastic drum in the back.

Officer Evangelos Mageros pulled the truck over to check for hazardous materials and the driver said there was a weapon in the drum, according to investigators.

A search found a 12-gauge shotgun and 175 rounds of ammunition. Police say 45-year-old Marlon Murphy, of Easton, Pennsylvania, couldn't provide documentation for the shotgun.

He was charged with unlawful weapons possession. Bail was set at $30,000.

A phone listing couldn't be found for Murphy, and it wasn't immediately known if he'd retained an attorney.
