Pennsylvania trio indicted on gun charges in NJ
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Three Pennsylvania residents have been indicted on multiple charges after they were stopped in New Jersey trying to drive into New York City with a cache of weapons.
Authorities said they’ll release details of the 63-count indictment in court on Oct. 31.
John Cramsey, 51, and Dean Smith, 53, of Zionsville, and 29-year-old Kimberly Arendt of Lehighton, have pleaded not guilty to weapons charges.
They were stopped at the entrance of the Holland Tunnel in Jersey City in June in a truck that had gun-rights decals on it. Police said the vehicle had a cracked windshield.
Cramsey, whose daughter died of a heroin overdose in February, posted online shortly before the arrest that he was heading to New York to “rescue” a 16-year-old girl whose friend had overdosed.
