This cane skull sword was brought into the Wood county courthouse complex on 7-14-15 at 1:20pm. It was detained at the front security desk. The sword was held while the owner went to the Auditor’s office for his business. He also had a pocket knife that was held. Note the 18 inch sword that was attached to the skull head when it was screwed onto the cane was concealed. Please be aware of this. thank you
