3 charged after cache of weapons found inside van at tunnel

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Three Pennsylvania residents face numerous charges after a cache of weapons was found inside a van that was stopped at the Holland Tunnel, which connects New Jersey to New York City. No link to terrorism is suspected.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police say officers stopped the van Tuesday morning in Jersey City for a cracked windshield.

A subsequent search uncovered multiple weapons in the vehicle, including rifles and handguns. Some were loaded.

Fifty-year-old John Cramsey and 53-year-old Dean Smith, both of Zionsville, and 29-year-old Kimberly Arendt, of Lehighton, each face several weapons charges. They couldn’t be reached for comment.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing.

The van carried the name of an Allentown, Pennsylvania, gun range. Attempts to reach the business were unsuccessful.
