Shortly after 8:15 last night, members of the New York State Police entered the home and found the 41-year old man hiding in the basement, Bragg was taken into custody by State Police and turned over to the Sheriff's Office.
Bragg was arraigned in the Town of Annsville Court on the charges of Menacing in the 2nd Degree, a Class A Misdemeanor and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 3rd Degree, a Class D Felony.
