Complaints from neighbors led police to raid a north Portland home and seize three guns.
Officers said they searched the North Winchell Street home of 53-year-old Mark Brandt after complaints he was firing his gun in the neighborhood and menacing several neighbors by pointing a rifle at them.
Neighbors also expressed concerns about drug use and drug dealing at the home and said Brandt had been showing "increasingly bizarre and erratic behavior lately," according to police.
Police seized three rifles, a handgun, numerous rounds of ammunition and a small amount of meth at the home.
Because police had concerns that Brandt was possibly suffering from a mental health crisis, a Behavioral Health Unit officer and a mental health professional joined officers at the site of the search warrant.
They later determined Brandit needed mental health treatment, which he is expected to receive once he's released from jail on his charges.
He is being held on charges of unlawful use of a weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, pointing a firearm at another, menacing, disorderly conduct, discharging a gun in the city, reckless endangerment and possession of methamphetamine.
