ROSELLE PARK — A Union County grand jury indicted Travis Dulk, 27, of Roselle Park, for being in possession of a stockpile of powerful weapons last year, according to Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park.
The indictment against Dulk includes multiple second- and third-degree weapons charges, with each of the former offenses carrying a potential penalty of 5 to 10 years in state prison.
Roselle Park police stopped a vehicle with tinted windows on May 14, according to Union County Assistant Prosecutor Robert Rosenthal, who is prosecuting the case.
An officer believed Dulk, a passenger in the vehicle, was not wearing a seat belt and was acting suspiciously while it was pulled over near the Garden State Parkway, Rosenthal said.
A search of the vehicle and its two occupants turned up a .380-caliber Ruger pistol loaded with hollow-point bullets, a second magazine also containing hollow-point bullets, a small plastic bag with additional rounds of ammunition, a folding knife, several bags of cocaine, and quantities of methadone and alprazolam.
A subsequent search of Dulk’s home on the 100 block of Filbert Street in Roselle Park revealed numerous firearms, knives, and other devices – including an assault rifle, high-capacity ammunition magazines, an improvised explosive device, sets of brass knuckles, and two canisters of explosive powder.
The Union County Prosecutor’s Office noted that criminal charges are mere accusations and each defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
