The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of an Ovid resident following an investigation.
Johnathan Swick, 30, was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and criminal contempt.
It’s alleged that Swick possessed a .50 caliber assault weapon and a large-capacity ammunition feeding device while a court order of protection was active.
That order barred him from possessing firearms, deputies said in a press release.
Deputies were assisted by state police.
