An East Dalhousie man is facing weapons charges after a threats complaint in the community Wednesday.

Officers responded to the complaint at 9:00 a.m. and investigators determined a male had made threatening statements before leaving his home and firing a rifle nearby, but nobody was injured.

Police say the suspect was located and arrested without incident and five firearms and ammunition were seized from a home.

54-year-old Larry Glenwood Zink is facing 13 charges including uttering threats and five counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm.
