— A Raleigh man has been arrested on several charges stemming from accusations that he took weapons onto the North Carolina State University campus.

Steven Patrick O'Connell, 56, of 6909 River Run in Raleigh, is charged with three counts of having a gun on educational property and one count of having weapons on campus.

Arrest warrants allege that O'Connell was in possession of a Gerber Mark II knife, two axes and an unloaded Colt Delta Elite 10mm handgun while he was on the property of the university's College of Veterinary Medicine on Friday.

Warrants also indicate that a black Colt AR-15 rifle was found in his Toyota Tacoma truck.

O'Connell was released from the Wake County jail Monday evening after posting a $12,500 bond.
