A borough resident was indicted by a Monmouth County Grand Jury on multiple weapons charges Wednesday after he was arrested by Red Bank police during an incident in May.
According to police, David Rainey, of the first block of Bank Street, was found to be in possession of a knuckle knife, which are illegal to own. Though there are several varieties of knuckle knives, each bares some resemblance to knuckledusters, which are made of metal and designed to fit around the knuckles.
The grand jury handed down indictments on three counts, including unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon, and certain persons not to have weapons. Each is a fourth degree charge.
The last count is a result of Rainey's past convictions. According to court documents, the 42 year old has multiple drug convictions, including possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, stemming from arrests in 1995 and 2006.
Further details about Rainey's arrest were not immediately known. Rainey was not indicted on any charges related to attempts to use the knuckle knife.
