A Hanover man has been arrested and charged for illegal possession of firearm and ammunition and Assault at Common law, in connection with an incident where he reportedly threatened a family member with a handgun, at their home in Woodland district, on Sunday.
The accused man has been identified as 39-year-old Damian Butler, otherwise called ‘Ticky’ laborer also of Woodland district.
