A Dufresne-area man was taken into custody on Thursday morning after police, including the RCMP’s emergency response team, responded to an incident at a property near the Trans-Canada Highway and Provincial Road 207.

Around 1:45 a.m., a 32-year-old female phoned police to say her 60-year-old common-law partner was threatening to burn down the property and had made threats to harm police if they responded.

The woman, who was calling from another home, told police the man was burning her personal belongings, that he was alone, and that he had numerous firearms in the residence.

When the emergency response team approached the residence around 7:40 a.m., the man immediately exited, surrendered and was taken into custody without incident.

Officers secured the residence and located numerous firearms.

Police said the man remains in custody and will face numerous firearm related charges as well as uttering threats and arson.
