On 03-15-2022 at 1239 hours, multiple callers reported a male, possibly in crisis or under the influence, walking through Columbia City waving around a firearm and multiple magazine cartridges. This erratic behavior caused many citizens to believe they were in danger and some businesses elected to go into lock down mode. Officers located the suspect holding the firearm. After a brief dialogue the suspect was arrested for the unlawful possession of the firearm (as they were a convicted felon) and felony harassment. The gun is possibly an unreported stolen firearm, along with the 4 magazines that contained 66 rounds (one in the chamber).
