A police investigation revealed that Glass was a felon and not permitted to possess any firearm.

Court records show that Glass had previously been charged with a host of traffic crimes including hitting an unattended vehicle or property in Lehigh County back in 2019. Other charges include driving without a license and driving without vehicle insurance several times in the last few years.
