ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany man has been indicted for carrying a sword, a machete, and a knife onto the Albany Technical College campus.

Dylan Richards was arrested January 14th. He was not a student at Albany Tech.

School officials say Richards was in the atrium of the Kirkland Building with a sword, with a more than two foot long blade, leaning on the wall next to him.

When Police asked him about it, they noticed Richards also had a nearly two foot long machete in a backpack and a seven inch long knife.

The District Attorney says he will prosecute school weapon violations.

Prosecutors say Richards could face up to 5 years in prison on each count if convicted.
