Boardman man arrested after police find concealed weapons

BOARDMAN — An Erie Street man faces two charges of carrying concealed weapons — one for a gun, which is a felony, and the other for a knife which is a misdemeanor — among other allegations.

Tony Olds, 28, is charged with trafficking in drugs, unlawful possession of a weapon, cocaine possession and two counts of carrying concealed weapon. He was lodged in the Mahoning County jail.

Early Thursday, police stopped a truck on Mathews Road at South Avenue after seeing the driver fail to use a turn signal.

Police found a knife in Olds’ pants pocket, the handle of a pistol in his crotch and plastic bags containing suspected marijuana and suspected crack cocaine in his waistband, the report said.

Police found the barrel of the gun underneath the vehicle and ammunition under the driver’s seat, the report said.
