A suspect arrested after police responded to a complaint of a threat that involved a gun in Antigonish has had his case adjourned.
RCMP say a man threatened a woman in the town one afternoon in January.
They say he told her he had a gun in his vehicle.
Police say they seized a .22 calibre handgun, ammo, a baseball bat and a knife.
They say officers arrested John Francis Gerroir, 54, outside a home on Braemore Ave.
Gerroir, who has been in custody since his arrest, has been charged with several firearms offences, two counts of criminal harassment and one count of uttering threats; he was expected for a fitness hearing in Antigonish Provincial Court Wednesday.
Instead, it was adjourned, and he was remanded into a mental institute until his next hearing Feb. 28.
