April 10. 2015 8:11PM

HOOKSETT — Police arrested a man on weapons charges after they stopped him for speeding early Friday morning and said they found a large meat cleaver near the driver's seat.

Jesse Longden, 29, also had a large butterfly knife in his pocket and two other knives in his possession, police said.

Longden was not supposed to possess weapons of any kind since being convicted of first-degree domestic assault in 2012.

Police said they stopped Longden about 1:15 a.m. near Tri-Town Ice Arena after they saw him speeding. While the officer was speaking to him, he saw the meat cleaver between the driver's seat and the center console, police said.

Londgen was arrested and charged with being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon.

He later was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail, pending arraignment on May 20 in 6th Circuit Court-Hooksett District Division.
