Police seized a stash of guns and ammunition from the residence of a Fairfield man following complaints from neighbors and others that the suspect was harassing them.
The suspect reported to police in April that his neighbor was harassing him. Through subsequent interviews with the neighbor and other parties, police determined that the suspect -- identified as Gilbert Haight, 49, of High Street -- had allegedly threatened the neighbor and a third party.
According to the arrest report, Haight allegedly told the neighbor that if he comes near Haight, "he's going to have a bunch of holes in him."
Police obtained a search and seizure warrant in July for Haight's home and seized a .38-caliber Charter Arms revolver, a .25-caliber Berretta, three BB rifles, and boxes of ammunition, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.
Officers applied for an arrest warrant for criminal possession of a firearm following the search and seizure of Haight's home. Haight, who police said has a criminal history dating back to 1990 and is a convicted felon is not allowed to own a gun.
Haight turned himself in at police headquarters on Monday. He was released on a promise to appear in court on Sept. 10.
