The man said he was trying to save her from an overdose

Police stopped a man on the way to New York City this week with a arsenal of guns and knives in his car, but the man said he was rushing to “rescue” a teenage girl from an overdose.

John Cramsey was pulled over with seven guns, four knives, 10 clips of ammunition, body armor and a military-grade helmet, ABC News reports. Law enforcement officials told ABC there did not appear to be any link to terrorism in the incident.
