Two area men have been arrested for alleged possession of guns and drugs during a crackdown on gun violence.

Michael Wardlaw-Brown, age 31, and Winston White, age 28, both of the City of Poughkeepsie, were arrested on Wednesday, May 5 as part of the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department's ongoing investigation into drug activity and gun violence in the area of Carroll Street, said Capt. Richard Wilson.

During a warrant search, conducted by the department's Neighborhood Recovery Unit along with the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, and the Dutchess County Task Force, agents recovered:

  • A loaded Vulcan V10-9 9mm pistol with a high capacity magazine
  • A loaded polymer 80Inc 9mm handgun with no serial number
  • A “ghost gun”
  • More than 14 grams of loose fentanyl
  • Over 300 glassine bags of packaged fentanyl/cocaine mixture
  • Over 12 grams of “crack” cocaine, 
  • $4,600 in cash
  • Multiple scales and packaging materials

Both suspects were transported to United States Court- Southern District of New York where they were arraigned on multiple federal gun and narcotics-related charges and turned over to US Marshals, he added.

"The above location has been the subject of ongoing complaints by the community members," Wilson said.
