On June 25, 2020, State Police in Latham arrested 21-year-old Shalyn M. Pugh of New Castle, DE, for Criminal Possession of a Firearm, a class E felony.

Troopers stopped a 2003 Nissan for a series of traffic violation as the operator drove on State Route 9 in the city of Albany Thursday afternoon. When the Trooper interviewed the driver, they observed signs indicative of drug use. A search of the vehicle and its occupants revealed that Pugh, who was a passenger, was in possession of a loaded handgun and did not possess a New York State pistol permit.

Pugh was taken into custody and transported to SP Latham for processing. She was subsequently bought to Albany County Jail to await arraignment.
