A search of her vehicle resulted in the recovery of a rifle, replica rifle, silencers, an abundance of ammunition, a stun gun baton, and a butterfly knife.” 

She was arrested on suspicion of possession of an assault weapon, possession of a silencer, possession of a baton, carrying a loaded firearm in public, possession of an unregistered firearm, concealed firearm in a vehicle and possession of a switchblade.
