A Hope man and two Camden brothers were arrested in Hartford, Conn., on Feb. 18, following a traffic stop northwest of downtown in the Statewide Narcotics Task Force North Central District.

According to the Hartford Police Department, Jason Josselyn, 22, of Hope and Angus Pfister, 18, and Noah Pfister, 20, both of Camden, were arrested and each charged with weapons in a motor vehicle, possession of a firearm without a permit and interfering with police.

According to Hartford Police Sgt. Christene Mertes, officers Garett Fancher and Daniel Blumes observed Noah Pfister operating erratically in the area of Branford Street. After stopping the car, the officers allegedly observed a box labeled “Blazer Ammunition” next to the rear passenger, Angus Pfister, as well as a firearm with a large ammunition magazine attached to it protruding from the rear seat.

According to the police report, the weapon in the vehicle was a Glock .9 mm pistol with a round in the chamber and a 32-round magazine attached. Police also seized a large duffel bag containing $10,000 cash.

According to Dale Armstrong of the Portland Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, it is no longer a federal violation to possess a magazine with more than 12 rounds capacity. “It was part of the earlier assault weapons ban, but the law doesn’t provide a restriction on the size of magazines anymore,” said Armstrong.

In addition, Noah Pfister was charged with a traffic violation. The arrests occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 18, according to police.

All three were originally being held on $500,000 bail, but court records Monday indicate Josselyn was released on $50,000 bail, while the Pfisters remained in custody on $40,000 bail. All three men are scheduled to appear in Hartford Superior Court on March 16 at 10 a.m.
