Police recover four guns after firearms threat in Bridgewater

by Keith Corcoran

A 51 year old man faces a threats charge, and could be subject to other charges, after a police investigation turned up four long guns at a home on the east side of Bridgewater.

The accused's name isn't being released because police haven't filed the charge Information with a court.

Authorities were told May 26 at 10:45 a.m. that a man made threats to another person outside a LaHave Street business. The apparent threat involved using a firearm to cause harm, Sgt. Trevor Mitchell of the Bridgewater Police Service told LighthouseNOW.

A suspect matching the description of the man who was the subject of the complaint was arrested near the business. The man taken into custody didn't possess a weapon at the time of arrest, nor were any in the vicinity, Mitchell said.

The investigation led to a home in town where four guns were recovered by police.

Mitchell said more charges are possible as the probe continues.
