LACONIA — A Gilford man is being held on $1,000 cash bail for having a stiletto knife on him while being a felon and for having criminal contact with police while he is out on bail for another alleged crime.
Police affidavits obtained from the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division said that Brandon Heacox, 20, of 6 Cumberland Road said police were called to the home because of an argument.
After verifying there was an active arrest warrant from Laconia Police for willful concealment, police arrived at the home and arrested him. While being searched and handcuffed, police found a green stiletto knife in his front pocket. Heacox allegedly told police he carried it for personnel protection and that he thought it was legal for him to have.
Affidavits said Heacox was convicted in 2013 of receiving stolen property and being in possession of a stolen firearm. In 2012 he was convicted of attempted burglary.
Heacox was arrested in November of 2015 for criminal threatening and was scheduled to appear yesterday for charge.
