Man Accused Of Threatening 100 Mile House RCMP Now Charged
57-year old Richard Thorne is facing one count each of Uttering Threats and Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm and is due back in court on October 2nd for an arraignment hearing.
Thorne was arrested back in May of this year.
RCMP say a man came into the detachment to discuss an incident from the night before, and in the course of the conversation threatened to shoot police in the head with a handgun if he saw them.
RCMP say a search warrant was then executed on a property on Park Drive.
Police say that while no handguns were found, two unsecured rifles were, adding that the suspect did not have a firearms license for them.
