Manchester man threatened person with sawed off shotgun, then fled the scene dumping the weapon in the woods

Deputies report the arrest of a Manchester resident following an investigation in Palmyra.

Jason Harrison, 42, was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, and criminal possession of a controlled substance.


He’s accused of getting into an argument with another person, then pulling a sawed off shotgun out, and pointing it at the other person.

He then fled the scene and dumped the shotgun in a duffle bag in the woods. The gun was recovered along with a bag of crack cocaine.

The charges will be answered at a later date.
