On that date, the OPP received a complaint that two people on an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) had stopped in front of a residence in Central Frontenac Township. The owner of that residence reported that one of the occupants of the ATV was believed to be pointing a firearm at the residence.

Nearly a month later, two 30-year-old Sharbot Lake residents were charged with numerous offences as a result.

Lucas Young, 30, is charged with:
