3 people were allegedly heading to NYC to rescue a girl from a heroin den on the 4 month anniversary of the death of one of their daughters.
A gun range owner whose daughter recently died of a heroin overdose was one of the three people arrested outside a New York City tunnel after police found a huge cache of weapons in their vehicle.
John Cramsey, 50, who runs Higher Ground Tactical in Emmaus, Pennsylvania, was with Dean Smith, 52, and 29-year-old Kimberly Arendt when they were pulled over outside the Holland Tunnel.
They were initially stopped for a cracked windshield, but officers then found multiple loaded guns, rifles, knives, ballistic vests and a camouflage helmet.
When questioned, they described themselves as self-styled vigilantes, according to reports, and were on their way to a Brooklyn hotel where they wanted to ‘extract’ a teenager.
They were detained on the four-month anniversary of the day Cramsey’s daughter, Alexandria ‘Lexii’ Cramsey, died of a heroin overdose.
Just before he was arrested, Cramsey wrote on Facebook: ‘I’m currently 11 miles outside of Brooklyn New York and going to a hotel to extract a 16 year old girl who went up there to Party with a few friends.
‘One of those friends she went up there with will not be returning.
But that’s not the full story-
Authorities believe the suspects were in possession of the firearms as part of criminal activity, likely heroin related.
Drugs were in the vehicle along with the guns, according to one law enforcement official.
One of the suspects allegedly told officers they were on their way to Queens.
A source initially told CBS New York they were going to shoot a rival dealer.
The suspects reportedly said they wanted to save a friend who is on heroin and being held against her will.
A “rival” heroin dealer??
I highly doubt we’re dealing with heroes here.
ht/ all too much
