JERSEY CITY - A Hudson County judge has reduced bail for two Pennsylvania residents who were arrested in June with another man for trying to drive into New York City with a cache of weapons.

Dean Smith and Kimberly Arendt had been jailed on $75,000 cash bail. The judge on Friday reduced their bail to $25,000 cash, with the option of posting 10 percent.

Both families are working to post bond.

The co-defendants and another Pennsylvania resident, John Cramsey, were detained as they prepared to enter the Holland Tunnel.

Cramsey, whose daughter died of a heroin overdose in February, posted on Facebook shortly before the arrest that he was heading to New York to "rescue" a 16-year-old girl whose friend had overdosed. He's already been released on bond.

All three have pleaded not guilty to weapons charges.
