This week in North Carolina, a Glock 19 was found during a drug raid disguised as a Nerf toy gun, and it has gotten authorities concerned.

Hickory Police Department, Newton Police Department, and Narcotics Investigators with the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office organized a raid just north of Charlotte when the weapon was found with a 50-round drum magazine.

In order for the gun to look like a toy, it was painted Nerf’s signature blue and orange colors complete with the company logo. 

The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office released that the disguised gun was only one of 20 shotguns, rifles, and other pistols found on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.

Here is what the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office had to say in the release:

“One of these weapons, a converted Glock model 19 pistol with a fifty round drum magazine, had been altered to resemble a toy Nerf gun. Firearms of this type, while not illegal to possess, are concerning to law enforcement.

Firearms, in general, are commonly seized in conjunction with searches were felony amounts of narcotics are present.
