Three people were arrested at the Peace Bridge early Sunday morning.

At 4:30 a.m. U.S. Customs and Boarder Protection discovered two loaded guns in a vehicle occupied by two males and one female all in their 20's. The three wanted to turn around claiming to have made a wrong turn and did not intend to get on the bridge.  They were sent to secondary for an additional exam where officers discovered the guns in a duffel bag in the trunk along with fatigue-style clothing  and a mask.
