AUSTIN-- Austin police say a man who called 911 to complain about alleged bank fraud was arrested when he was found with a machete and 20 other knives or blades.

Douglas Dockery, 50, is charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon, plus having prohibited weapons such as a switchblade or knuckles.

Police documents indicate Dockery also was held on a warrant out of Bexar County. Travis County electronic jail records provided no further details on that case or listed an attorney for Dockery, whose bail was $14,000.

Police say Dockery was arrested Saturday night outside a convenience store. The machete, with a 16-inch blade, was fastened to Dockery's right leg.
