Police: 'Emotionally Disturbed' Armed Man Arrested in East Greenbush

Multiple weapons were found in a local case involving an individual described as "disturbed" on Sunday.

A crisis negotiator was called in on Sunday, after 43-year-old Edward Reis of Knox indicated to a friend that he wanted to hurt himself. A search of  Reis' home allegedly found numerous firearms, explosives, grenades and a forged New York State pistol permit. 

Reis was found at a motel in East Greenbush. Through work with the crisis negotiator, he turned himself over to police.
