Construction crew finds 5 guns in kitchen ceiling of Harlem apartment during remodeling
The workers found the weapons around 8:15 p.m. Thursday while they were demolishing a room in an apartment on West 145th Street.
They found five different firearms, including a 9 mm. pistol and .45 caliber handgun. Officials do not know how long they have been hidden inside the ceiling.
The weapons are currently in evidence and an investigation is underway.
The building's superintendent Vincent Pena told The New York Daily News that he and the previous tenants did not know about the hidden weapons.
