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. On 09/17/2018, Patrol Officers and Detectives made contact with Wilson and another party at his residence in the 7000 block of Elgin Drive, Milford, Sussex County, DE. 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.

Wilson was charged with Possession Of A Firearm During The Commission Of a Felony, Possession of Ammunition By Person Prohibited, and Possession Of A Firearm By Person Prohibited. Wilson had a presentment through Justice of the Peace Court 2 and was released on $70,000.00 USC unsecured bail. He was ordered to have no contact with the victims in the case. Wilson was ordered to appear at a later date in Sussex County Court of Common Pleas for a preliminary hearing.
