Seek and you shall find — weapons in New York City schools.

City officials placed a metal detector in a Brooklyn high school the day after a student was busted with a loaded gun — and turned up an astonishing 21 weapons in just one day, law sources said.

The Department of Education installed a scanner at Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice in downtown Brooklyn Thursday morning after a 17-year-old student was nabbed with a 9mm pistol and more than $30,000 in cash.

The school does not normally have a scanner in place.

But Thursday’s surprise installation netted a varied arsenal — including nine knives, seven cans of pepper spray, four stun guns, and a pair of brass knuckles, sources said.

The discoveries came a day after a student at the school showed up late around noon and entered an office to log his attendance.

Greg Floyd, the president of the school safety agents union says that people who want to remove school safety officers and metal detectors “aren’t dealing in reality.”

A secretary spotted what she thought was a pistol in his backpack and alerted school safety agents.

The student was detained until NYPD units arrived and discovered the gun and tens of thousands of dollars in cash. The student was arrested and taken to a local precinct.

Greg Floyd, the president of the school safety agents union, said he wasn’t surprised by Thursday’s startling haul.

“Once again,” he said. “I ask the question. How many weapons are in our schools? We just don’t know. This is the tip of the iceberg.”

Floyd reiterated his opposition to those calling for the removal of safety agents and metal detectors from schools.

“They aren’t dealing in reality,” he said. “Parents should be afraid of them.

The metal detector was installed the day after a student was caught with a pistol and $30,000 cash.

While some city schools have detectors year-round, others are only subject to random or temporary scanning.

Mayor de Blasio opted to increase unannounced scanning earlier this year after a rash of violent incidents and gun seizures in and around city schools.
