NEW YORK -

A man from Brooklyn was found with a large amount of contraband at the Holland Tunnel Sunday.

Officials say 24-year-old Shalom Amron was stopped at the Manhattan-bound toll plaza because he didn't have enough cash to pay the toll.

Port Authority police say they smelled marijuana on him and detained him.

When they searched his car they found a box of hollow point bullets, two air guns, a pair of handcuffs and just under 50 grams of marijuana.

Amron is due in court on Feb. 15.
