Jackson Police officers took an Allentown man into custody after they confiscated an arsenal of weapons from his car and home on Thursday morning.

Security personnel at the park reported to Jackson Police officers that the man returned to the park after being escorted out and was harassing employees because he was not hired.

During the course of the investigation, police learned that the suspect possessed a handgun that was inside his vehicle according to police.

A further search of the car had officers allegedly locate a Glock 9mm handgun in a holster, three loaded 15-round magazines for the gun, several knives, an SOG machete, an SOG tactical tomahawk, handcuffs and a hat with the NYPD logo and other firearms.

Police arrested Mr. Jonathan Fruchter then received a warrant to search his home where authorities say they found an AR-15 rifle and several 30-round magazines, a Sig Sauer 40 caliber handgun and ammunition.

Police charged Fruchter with unlawful possession of weapons, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, certain persons not to possess weapons, possession of magazines capable of holding in excess of 10 rounds and possession of handcuffs.
