Five people have been arrested on set of a French MontanaBusta Rhymes and Ja Rule music video in Brooklyn, New York.

NY Daily News reports:

Three men and two women — including the set security guard — were facing weapons and drug charges after plainclothes cops infiltrated the shoot behind a Fulton St. Bravo Supermarket in East New York at about 6:15 p.m. and spotted the illegal hardware, officials said.

In addition to weapons, authorities discovered cocaine, marijuana, and molly on set.

Those arrested included 35-year-old security guard Frank Bartlett, who had a defaced firearm in his waistband, 32-year-old Ronald James, who was seen passing a Derringer pistol to his girlfriend, Ebonee Eastmond, 27 — who was also arrested — and Edward Elkins, who had a semiautomatic pistol in a shopping bag between his feet, cops said. Wendy Miranda, 30, who was in the video, was also busted when a .32-caliber revolver was recovered near her, cops said.

Coke Boy Records filmed the video, which paid homage to rapper Chinx, who was shot dead during a drive-by in Queens on May 17.

The newspaper wrote that cops were tipped off by community residents who reported seeing guns and drugs on the set, according to a police source.
