A 45-year-old Akron man was arrested Tuesday by State Police after a Taser stun gun was found during a search of his house on Skyline Drive.

Rodney H. Howard was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth-degree and ordered to appear in Newstead Town Court in several weeks. The Taser was discovered as troopers were helping U.S. Border Patrol agents in a search of Howard’s home about 4:15 p.m. Border Patrol agents took Howard into custody at the end of the raid but the nature of the Border Patrol case against him has not been made public.
