GLENDALE — The manager of a Glendale business was charged last week after police allegedly found boxes containing 7,200 stun guns inside Top Choice Trading Inc., at 47-38 Metropolitan Ave., the Queens district attorney’s office said.

Xiao Zhang, of 58-30 256th St. in Little Neck, was arraigned Feb. 7 on charges of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, the DA said.

According to a criminal complaint filed by the DA, Zhang, 43, admitted to police that she had ordered employees to display a box of electronic stun guns after they had come in from a shipment sent from China.

A Bronx narcotics detective said he tested one of the stun guns, which he determined, based on his training, to be operable, according to the criminal complaint.

Other items that would constitute fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon include any firearm, electronic dart gun, gravity knife, switchblade knife, pilum ballistic knife, metal knuckle knife, cane sword, billy, blackjack, bludgeon, plastic knuckles, metal knuckles, chuka stick, sand bag, sandclub, slingshot and kung fu star.
