Randolph Man Charged With Unlawful Possession of Weapons

MORRIS COUNTY — Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp and Chief David Stokoe of the Randolph Township Police Department announce the arrest of Lawrence W. Ball, 60, Randolph, on numerous weapons related charges.

Randolph Township Police made contact with the defendant due to a report of him making obscene gestures towards others. Thereafter, the Randolph Police Department, in conjunction with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Homeland Security Unit, initiated a suspicious person investigation which ultimately led to a search of the defendant’s home where numerous prohibited weapons were located. Specifically, law enforcement officers seized 5 air/pellet guns, 51 daggers, 33 slingshots, and 11 metal knuckles from the defendant.

The defendant was charged on Monday, February 26 with the following offenses: Five counts of second-degree Certain Person Not to Possess a Weapon (Air Gun/BB Gun) in violation of J.S.A. 2C:39-7B(1); Three counts of fourth-degree Certain Persons to Have a Weapons (51 daggers, 33 slingshots, 11 metal knuckles) in violation of J.S.A. 2C:39-7A and Three counts of fourth-degree Possession of Prohibited Weapons and Devices (51 daggers, 33 slingshots, 11 metal knuckles) in violation of J.S.A. 2C:39-3E.

The Defendant is currently lodged at the Morris County Correctional Facility in accordance with Criminal Justice Reform.

Editors Note: A criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite this accusation, the defendant is presumed innocent until he or she is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
