Five people were arrested during the filming of a video featuring rap stars French Montana, Busta Rhymes and Ja Rule in Brooklyn, officials said Saturday.

Three men and two women — including the set security guard — were facing weapons and drug charges after plainclothes cops infiltrated the shoot behind a Fulton St. Bravo Supermarket in East New York at about 6:15 p.m. and spotted the illegal hardware,

Cocaine, marijuana and molly were also discovered, officials said.

Those arrested included 35-year-old security guard Frank Bartlett, who had a defaced firearm in his waistband, 32-year-old Ronald James, who was seen passing a Derringer pistol to his girlfriend, Ebonee Eastmond, 27 — who was also arrested — and Edward Elkins, who had a semiautomatic pistol in a shopping bag between his feet, cops said.

Wendy Miranda, 30, who was in the video, was also busted when a .32-caliber revolver was recovered near her, cops said.

Coke Boy Records filmed the video, which paid homage to rapper Chinx, who was shot dead during a drive-by in Queens on May 17.

Other stars seen at the set — which drew a crowd of 150 — included Noreaga, Juelz Santana and Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson.

Cops learned of the filming from community residents who reported seeing guns and drugs on the set, a police source said.

French Montana posted photos of the shoot on his Instagram account, but didn’t mention the arrests. Attempts to reach Coke Boy Records were unsuccessful Saturday evening.
