NEW MILFORD - New Milford police have arrested a man on weapons charges and say he may have been trying to kill wild geese. Police say they arrested John Hall, 49, on Sunday after finding him with two crossbows and 60 arrows.

Authorities received a report earlier in the week about a Canada Goose seen with an arrow through it.

Killing geese was banned in Bergen County two years ago.
