NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Metro Nashville police arrested two people after finding two guns hidden inside a teddy bear at an apartment, according to arrest documents, according to WTVF.
Officers arrested 18-year-old An Que Lam and an unidentified 15-year-old in the case.
According to police, neighbors at the Overton Apartments on Edmondson Pike called to say two people were wearing masks and brandishing guns in the complex.
When officers arrived, they said Lam tried running away. They caught up with him and found the second person in a nearby apartment.

All were packaged for sale, according to the police report.
