On 09/17/2018, the Milford Police Department arrested a Bernard Wilson, 48 of Milford, DE, stemming from a two-day terroristic threatening investigation. The investigation began on 09/16/2018 when the victims reported that Wilson allegedly made threats to do bodily harm to them via telephone to a third party. It was also reported that Wilson was allegedly in possession of a handgun, which he was prohibited from having due to being a convicted felon.

Officers obtained a consent search for the residence and during the course of the search located a firearm and ammunition, which officers learned belonged to Wilson. Wilson was then taken into custody and transported back to Milford PD.
