CITY OF NEWBURGH – Three men were found in a “suspicious vehicle” with a semi-automatic handgun and crack cocaine near First Street and Carpenter Avenue this week, police said.

The vehicle was parked in a “known drug location,” and occupied by three individuals, a police bulletin said. As police approached the vehicle, 19-year-old City of Newburgh resident Dequan Hudson tried to leave the vehicle, but was detained.

Crack cocaine, which tested positive during an on-site field test, was found in loose pieces in the front passenger compartment, police said. A loaded semi-automatic handgun, a Kel-Tec 9mm, was found on the floor between the driver’s seat and center console.

Hudson, as well as the driver Kirk Phillips, 52, of the Town of Newburgh and back seat occupant Rainer Hamilton, 20, of the City of Newburgh were arrested and charged with misdemeanor drug possession and felony weapons possession. The three were processed at the City of Newburgh police department and held pending arraignment in city court.
