Korey J. Holloway, 32, of Roxbury was arrested by state police on April 20 and charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon after he was allegedly seen in the area of Bridge and Depot streets in Roxbury carrying a sawed-off shotgun.
During the time between his arrests and when the incident was first reported to police, Roxbury Central School was locked down because of its proximity to the eventual arrest scene.
Police say that when they questioned Holloway he told them that he had been attacked two days earlier by two men at his residence which may have led to Holloway to carry several self-defense weapons on his person. Police say Holloway was in possession of several knives, a billy club and nunchucks when he was questioned. He was not in possession of a reported shotgun at the time of his arrest.
He was arraigned in Town of Middletown Justice Court and remanded to the county jail in lieu of $7,500 cash bail to await a felony hearing at a later date.
