A state police stop of a vehicle in Orange County led to the arrests of three men, including two from Rockland, as well as the discovery of drugs and a loaded handgun.
Troopers patrolling the Mechanicstown section of the Town of Wallkill on Sunday, Dec. 17 stopped a 2007 Hyundai for vehicle and traffic violations.
While speaking with the operator 19-year-old Chayne Price of Middletown, troopers noticed a strong odor of marijuana, according to state police.
A subsequent search of the vehicle produced a quantity of marijuana and a loaded .357 caliber European American Arms revolver, police said.
Price, along with his two passengers -- Keimoni Spinks, 19, and Timothy Brown, 25, both of Spring Valley -- were placed under arrest. None of the occupants possessed a permit allowing possession of the firearm.
