UTICA, N.Y., July 3 (UPI) -- An upstate New York woman has been charged with concealing a small armory of weapons in her child's stroller.
Stephanie Wilson of Utica was arrested Tuesday after she got into an argument with another woman about money, the Utica Observer-Dispatch reported. Police say that she pulled a knife and then a sawed-off shotgun out of the stroller to threaten the other woman.
"She had the weapons because she had just been in an argument with an individual, not because she was going to an extreme to protect herself," said Utica Public Safety Commissioner Daniel LaBella.
By the time police discovered Wilson, the weapons were back in hiding. They allegedly found a total of two knives, the shotgun and a box cutter.
Wilson is being held without bail on three counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one of illegal weapons possession. The child in the stroller is now in the custody of a social service agency while an older child is being cared for by relatives.
