OAKLAND, Maine — An Oakland man is facing a pair of felony charges after allegedly threatening another man with a gun, police said.

Gregory Hammerbeck, 41, was taken into custody on Friday after police executed a search warrant at his residence on Old Belgrade Road, Oakland police Capt. Rick Stubbert said.

Earlier in the week, Hammerbeck apparently used a 9 mm Ruger handgun to threaten another man, Stubbert said.

The incident wasn’t reported until Friday, the captain added.

Hammerbeck was found shortly before 10 p.m. on a second-floor patio and taken into custody without incident. He was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, both Class C felonies.

Hammerbeck was brought to Kennebec County Jail and later released on $4,000 bail, Stubbert said. He is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 25.
