NEW JERSEY — Three people have been arrested after a cache of weapons, including some that were loaded, were found in their vehicle near the Holland Tunnel in New Jersey on Tuesday, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

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

Multiple weapons, including rifles and handguns, some of which were loaded, were allegedly located in the vehicle and all three people were subsequently arrested.

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.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing.

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