CAIRO — A Hudson man was arrested on felony charges after numerous weapons were found in his truck during a traffic stop, Steven Nevel, public information officer for State Police Troop F, said Tuesday.
James Gaudiosi Jr., 27, was charged by state police with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal possession of a firearm, all felonies.
He was also charged with driving while intoxicated, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor; unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation; and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operator, Nevel said.
On Monday, at about 11 a.m., police stopped a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by Gaudiosi, on Route 23 in Cairo for a traffic violation, Nevel said.
While interviewing Gaudiosi, it was determined that he was impaired by alcohol and was driving on a suspended license, Nevel said.
A search of his vehicle uncovered a loaded .22 caliber pistol, a .22 long rifle, a black magazine containing ammunition, a billy club, the narcotic Tramadol in a pouch and marijuana, Nevel said. Gaudiosi was arraigned in Cairo Town Court before Judge Wanda Dorpfeld and released on his recognizance pending a future court appearance.
