Delta Police said the search was executed at a residence in the 11000-block of Corey Drive on Wednesday, after officers learned of the video in which a man was holding a firearm and “making threats.”

During the search, police seized an unauthorized firearm along with prohibited devices and ammunition.

“We take these types of situations very seriously and acted to ensure public safety,” said Delta Police Insp. Guy Leeson. “The work of our officers in executing the search warrant means that we have removed a potentially dangerous weapon from our streets.”

Now, 53-year-old Delta resident Paul Herbert Deane-Freeman is facing four charges in relation to the incident: Possession of a Prohibited or Restricted weapon with Ammunition, Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose, Possession Contrary to Order and Possession of a Firearm Knowing its Possession is Unauthorized.

Deane-Freeman is remanded in custody until his next court appearance on Tuesday, March 19.
