RCMP in Newfoundland and Labrador say a 63-year-old man faces charges after a threat was made against a Crown prosecutor.
Police say they arrested Edward Gellately at his home in New Harbour on Friday.
They allege a threatening message was left on the voicemail of the Crown prosecutor in Harbour Grace.
Gellately appeared in court Saturday to face charges of intimidation of a justice participant, careless use of a firearm and careless storage of a firearm.
Police say the firearms offences occurred at Gellately’s home.
He remains in custody and is to appear in court on Tuesday in St. John’s, N.L.
