Cops arrested a suspect in Brooklyn this week after they found a gun hidden inside a fake Bible.

Officers with the 70th precinct found the gun and at least 10 rounds in a case disguised as a King James Bible.

"The dangers our officers encounter," the precinct tweeted as a reminder late Tuesday.

The exact charges against the unidentified suspect were unclear as of Wednesday.


The precinct has seen an overall increase in shooting incidents in 2015, according NYPD Compstat numbers, with 15 reported incidents between January and early August.

A recent federal report by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives found traceable gun seizures were down citywide, with a reported 3,552 collected in 2014.
