Police find loaded handgun, drugs after executing warrant following fight in Auburn

An investigation into a fight that happened in Auburn led to drug and weapons charges, according to police.

Police say Harry Hurst III, 40, of Auburn was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm, and two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance – all as felonies. He was also charged with resisting arrest and two counts of obstructing governmental administration.


The arrest stemmed from officers in Auburn responding to a fight on Logan Street in the city. While there officers observed what appeared to be cocaine and a handgun, which resulted in a search warrant being sought.

That warrant was executed by the Finger Lakes Drug Task Force, which is when a loaded 9 mm handgun and approximately $2,000 in cash was found on Hurst.

He was taken into custody without further incident. The Cayuga County District Attorney’s Office will prosecute the case.
