According to police, Bryant was charged with four felony counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited and one count each of possession of ammunition by a person prohibited and harassing migratory waterfowl in connection with an April 16 nighttime incident involving firing a shotgun at a Canada goose on a pond in Hartly.

Investigators said that in connection with a separate waterfowl-related incident in January, Bryant also was charged with one count each of no hunting license, no Delaware waterfowl stamp, no federal waterfowl stamp and no harvest information program (number, all of which are required for hunting migratory waterfowl in Delaware.

Officers said they seized as evidence 13 firearms (eight shotguns, two rifles, two black powder revolvers and a muzzleloader rifle), a compound bow and arrows, two knives and anassortment of ammunition.

Bryant was taken to Justice of the Peace Court 7 in Dover, arraigned and released on $5,500 unsecured bond, pending a court appearance at a later date.
