A man has been taken into custody by East Liverpool Police after they say he was found with multiple weapons.

Police are calling the man an “apocalyptic hunter.” 

According to the East Liverpool Police Department’s Facebook page, Dillon Lockhart was found searching through the abandoned property at Riverview Florists. When police arrived, they say he was carrying a very large knife.

Police say they then searched his vehicle which multiple weapons were found including a loaded handgun with multiple loaded magazines of ammunition, a plethora of knives, multiple crossbows and arrows, many modified baseball bats and other odd weapons and accessories.

Police say Lockhart has been known to travel around the city and dress like a zombie hunter. 

According to court records, Lockhart pleaded not guilty to a handful of charges including criminal trespassing and improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle earlier Wednesday.

He’s due back in court on Thursday.
