SOHO — Quick-thinking cops who confronted a fidgety suspect on the C train made a startling find Tuesday night — a hidden and fully loaded .38-caliber Taurus handgun, police said.

Rahmeek Younger, 22, allegedly triggered a subway alarm at the West Fourth Street subway station in the West Village just after 10 p.m., police said.

Around the same time, anti-crime cops from Transit District 2, who were riding the southbound C train, spotted Younger hopping on, police said.

Younger nervously adjusted his jacket and kept his hands inside his jacket's pockets, the cops observed. At the Canal Street stop, the cops moved in, identified themselves and tried to remove him from the train, police said.

That's when Younger tried to fight the cops off. The officers subdued and placed him under arrest, police said.

None of the officers were hurt, police said.

When the cops searched Younger, they discovered a fully loaded .38-caliber Taurus revolver, police said.

Younger was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration and disorderly conduct, cops said.
