Lewis,-Don1Sgt. Joe Matteoni says the knife was a folding knife with a four inch blade that had been permanently locked in an open position. Lewis did not appear to have other suspicious items in his possession.  Lewis was taken into custody for the warrants and carrying a concealed dirk or dagger.  A different suspect was arrested over the weekend after he was spotted wearing a headlamp behind a business in the same area.
