Man facing threats and weapon charges


Shelburne RCMP have charged a 42-yearold man following a threats complaint in Lockeport, Shelburne County.

The RCMP say that on Dec. 21, at approx. 3:15 p.m., they responded to a 911 call from a store on Highway 3 in Lockeport.

“Members attended the store and determined that two men, known to each other, were having an argument when one man left saying he was going to come back with a gun and shoot the other man,” reads a media release.

Just after 5 p.m. RCMP members located the man’s car and pulled it over.

“The man jumped out of the car holding a firearm in his hand,” the release reads. “With some negotiatio­n, members calmed the man and he dropped the firearm.”

The man was arrested and no one was injured. The firearm was determined to be an imitation firearm and was seized.

The man from Shelburne County remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in Yarmouth Provincial Court on

Jan. 17 to face charges of uttering threats and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Because the charges had not yet been filed with the court, his name was not released.
