Pennsylvania trio indicted on gun charges in New Jersey

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 say they'll release details of the 63-count indictment in court on Oct. 31.



Fifty-one-year-old John Cramsey and 53-year-old Dean Smith of Zionsville, Pennsylvania, and 29-year-old Kimberly Arendt of Lehighton, Pennsylvania, 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.
