The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office is decrying a controversial cell phone case that appears to look like a handgun.
In a post on their Facebook page, the cover was labeled as “not a cool product or a good idea.”
The case, which is used to protect smartphones, looks eerily similar to a handgun and has a replica handle and trigger. In one photo, the cell phone is tucked into an individual’s back pocket and appears to be a handgun with the butt of the gun hanging out.
