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.
The Staten Island Advance (http://bit.ly/T1r2Dn) says police found the weapon and ammunition inside a bag after spotting the suspects smoking marijuana in the car on a Staten Island street last Thursday.
According to court papers, the AR-15.223-caliber Bushmaster rifle had a pistol grip, folding telescoping stock and flash suppresser.
