NEW YORK -- Two men have been arrested on gun and drug possession charges after the NYPD found a loaded assault rifle and 49 cartridges in their car.
Andy DeJesus of Staten Island and Eugene Ubiles of Manhattan were charged with multiple felony counts of criminal weapons possession and a felony count of drug possession.
