On Sept. 10, police officers along with members of the city's Code Compliance Division, inspected the U-Save Smoke Shop at 2525 Del Paso Blvd. During the inspection, they discovered several brass/metal knuckles (pictured) on display for sale, according to a Police Department news release. Also displayed for sale were multiple "cane swords" (pictured).
The investigation led Tuesday to issuance of an arrest warrant and the arrest of store employee John Park (pictured), 51. Park is accused of possession of a cane sword and possession of metal knuckles.
The cane swords and metal knuckles were confiscated and booked as evidence, police said.
