JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Deputies in North Carolina seized what looked like a Nerf toy gun but turned out to be an actual firearm, News4Jax.com reported.
The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office said that during a drug raid, deputies found a converted Glock model 19 pistol with a 50-round drum magazine that had been altered to resemble a plastic Nerf toy gun that shoots foam projectiles.
“Firearms of this type, while not illegal to possess, are concerning to law enforcement,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post, which included photos of the weapon.
Jacksonville residents were shocked when News4Jax showed them the photos and explained that it’s not a toy.
“Oh, my God,” Gracila Cain said. “That’s wild.”
“Oh, my gosh,” said Victor Musselwhite. “That’s unbelievable.”
