This morning at approximately 7:54 a.m., Secaucus Police Officers conducted a motor vehicle stop on Meadowlands Parkway for an expired registration and a brake light being out, Miller said in a statement.
During the motor vehicle stop, the officers observed a handgun on the driver’s side floorboard.
As a result, Timothy Williams was arrested and the Glock 43 9mm handgun was seized, loaded with both hollow point and full metal jacket ammunition. It also had a round in the chamber. Additionally, suspected Psilocybin Mushrooms were seized from the vehicle.
“The amount of people in possession of illegal guns is quite alarming, especially this motorist who was carrying a loaded handgun at his feet,” stated Miller.
“I commend the police officers involved for the seizure of another loaded handgun and their continued proactive policing methods.”
Williams, 33, of Virginia, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of hollow point ammunition, unlawful possession of handgun ammunition, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
After being processed, he was remanded to the Hudson County Correctional Facility, authorities said.
