Milford standoff

A 63 year old Milford man is facing charges after a ten hour standoff with police.

It started Saturday afternoon with a man threatening to burn down a house on Bayberry Drive, telling fire fighters he had a gun and threatening police.

A Crisis Negotiator finally talked him into giving up peacefully early yesterday morning.  The RCMP seized a 22 calibre rifle and took the man into custody on a number of charges.  Nobody was hurt.
