A traffic stop on the Taconic State Parkway in Dutchess County led to drug and weapon charges for a pair in possession of an allegedly stolen revolver.

New York State Police troopers stopped Pittsfield, Mass. resident Charece Boatwright, 29, and Bronx resident Anthony Jackson, 25, on June 14 in East Fishkill, after spotting her 2000 Ford Taurus committing a vehicle and traffic law violation on the parkway.

During the stop, police said that it was determined that Jackson was in possession of marijuana, and there was a loaded gun in the vehicle, which had been reported stolen in Vermont last year.

Both were charged with a felony counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of stolen property. Jackson was also cited for unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. Following arraignment, both were remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond. Each is due back in the Town of East Fishkill Court on Tuesday, June 19 to answer the charges against them.
