A Marshfield man arrested in connection on home invasion and gun charges has been released without bail following a dangerousness hearing.

Marshfield Police say that 26-year-old Paul Kodzis was arrested on Monday, October 14th, after a local woman, who knows him, said she awoke around 1:00 a.m. to find him in her home, yelling at her, while pointing a handgun and a police baton at her.

The man’s parents came to the home to pick him up after they had received a call from the woman. They also took the gun and baton from him. The woman’s roommates had been able to get Kodzis to hand over the gun, which they put in a bathroom.

Kodzis has been fired from his job as a public safety officer at Curry College.

Police also took two guns they found in the attic of his Primrose Lane home, a nine millimeter pistol and a Glock 40 pistol. They were unsecured, loaded and without trigger locks, as required by law.

His gun license has also been suspended.

Kodzis, of Marshfield, must wear a GPS bracelet and is due back in court, on December 2nd for a probable cause hearing.

He faces numerous charges, including home invasion with a firearm, assault with a dangerous weapon, witness intimidation, and improper storage of a large capacity firearm.
