Man ar­rested at NYC tun­nel with guns says he has no re­grets

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS -

EMMAUS >> A Penn­syl­va­nia man who was ar­rested for try­ing to drive into New York City with a cache of weapons says he doesn’t re­gret his ac­tions but calls the pres­ence of the guns an “over­sight.”

John Cram­sey, 51, of Emmaus, and two co-de­fen­dants were de­tained in June as they pre­pared to en­ter the Hol­land Tun­nel in a truck car­ry­ing a mil­i­tary-style ri­fle, a shot­gun and five hand­guns. Their at­tor­neys have said the po­lice search was il­le­gal. All three have pleaded not guilty to weapons charges.

Cram­sey, whose daugh­ter died of a heroin over­dose in Fe­bru­ary, posted on­line shortly be­fore the ar­rest that he was head­ing to New York to “res­cue” a 16-yearold girl whose friend had over­dosed.

He told The (Wilkes-Barre) Cit­i­zens’ Voice in an in­ter­view that he for­got that he had weapons in his truck when he set out to try to help the girl. Still, he said he doesn’t re­gret his ac­tions.

“I don’t re­gret I spent three months in jail. I don’t re­gret I went there that day. If I had to go back again, I would,” Cram­sey said.
