A 41-year-old man from St. George, N.B., has been charged with several firearm related offences following an incident of mischief in the community.
On April 1, 2021, Henry Sargefield appeared in Saint John Provincial Court by way of tele-remand and was charged with:
two counts of pointing a firearm
possession of a firearm for a dangerous purpose
two counts of uttering threats
mischief under $5,000
The charges stem from an incident that occurred on March 30, 2021. At approximately 7:45 a.m., members of the St. George RCMP responded to a report of a van with four flat tires blocking L'Etete Road. When police arrived on scene, they learned the man responsible was armed and staying at a nearby residence. A perimeter was set up as a safety precaution and local schools were advised so they can take proper action.
A 41-year-old man exited the home and surrendered to police without incident at 8:30 a.m. Nobody was injured during the incident. Police later seized two firearms.
Henry Sargefield was remanded into custody and is scheduled to return to court on April 6 for a bail hearing.
The investigation is ongoing.
