As troopers were searching the vehicle, they discovered multiple hidden compartments containing a grand total of 14 weapons. Popper’s weapons of choice included: 9 handguns, 4 rifles, and 1 switchblade knife.
In the Blues Traveler lead singer’s defense, though, all of the weapons were acquired legally. Popper rationalized his stash by telling the authorities that, in the event of a natural disaster, he didn’t want to be left behind. The singer is known as a gun enthusiast and informed the troopers that he was a weapons collector. Troopers report that the amount of modifications to the vehicle were not something they might see every day. These modifications, beyond the hidden compartments, include: flashing emergency lights, a siren, an external public address system, night vision goggles, and a Taser.
Popper and Gourgeois will be charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. There is also the possibility that Popper will face federal charges for the possession of a vehicle with hidden compartments. (emphasis mine)
