MASSILLON, Ohio - A Massillon man is behind bars after police said he stalked a mental health facility with a loaded gun and three large knives.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Paul Lewis, 33, had previously been advised to stay away from Heartland Behavioral Healthcare -- located on Erie Street S -- earlier Thursday when employees reported him walking around with a gun and knives.
Later that evening, Lewis returned and was arrested by troopers. His vehicle was towed.
Toopers inspected Lewis' vehicle and located a loaded 9mm handgun, three large knives and a large quantity of ammunition.
Lewis was booked at the Stark County Jail on charges of felony illegal conveyance of weapons into a drug or detention facility and criminal and aggravated trespassing.
