The Somerset County businessman who allegedly brought semiautomatic handguns, hollow-point bullets, handcuffs, a fake badge and a bullet-proof vest into Morristown’s Headquarters Plaza last month has been released from the Morris County Jail, according to the Morris County Sheriff’s Office.

Andrew Pfitzenmayer, 26, was released on Monday evening after posting $100,000 bail, an officer at the jail confirmed on Tuesday.

The Peapack-Gladstone resident owns St. Leger Concierge, an event planning business in Somerset County,  and is a volunteer with the Far Hills-Bedminster Fire Department.

At a hearing last week, an assistant prosecutor in Morris County told the judge that Pfitzenmayer had given conflicting and untruthful explanations for his foray into HQ Plaza, including a representation that he ran a business there.

Pfitzenmayer, who has no criminal record, was charged with unlawful possession of weapons and possession of prohibited ammunition.

Authorities voiced concerns about his mental health, but Superior Court Judge Stephen Taylor declined to order a psychological evaluation, according to the Daily Record.
