SECAUCUS — Newly released police bodycam footage shows nearly 40 firearms that authorities say were found in a closet at Hudson Regional Hospital last month.

Reuven Alonalayoff, 46, was arrested on Aug. 7 at Newark Liberty International Airport. Secaucus police said K9s detected the firearms in the closet in Alonalayoff's office while they were searching the premises after an unrelated bomb threat. Police Chief Dennis Miller said the bomb threat was a hoax.

The bodycam footage, first obtained by the Hudson County View, shows the guns laid out on a table alongside an opened case. The video was reportedly released without audio.

One officer is seen unloading one firearm with a scope and clearing the weapon before placing it on the table with the others. He then returns to the closet to grab another case.

Police said they found over three dozen handguns, shotguns, and rifles including:

  • 11 handguns of various calibers
  • 27 rifles/shotguns
  • A Kriss Vector .45 caliber semi-automatic rifle with a high-capacity magazine
  • A 14-round high-capacity handgun magazine.

“The unsecured storage of a large cache of weaponry, especially in this location, certainly creates a risk to public safety,” Miller said at the time of Alonalayoff's arrest.

While police said Alonalayaoff was a marketing director at Hudson Regional Hospital, a statement from the hospital said he was a consultant, not an employee.

"The presence of weapons in a hospital is inexcusable beyond comprehension and contradicts our mission of care," the hospital told ABC 7 Eyewitness News.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
