An Unalaska man was arrested Monday for making threats against two people and "the occupants of a local organization," according to a statement from the Department of Public Safety.

Acting Police Chief Jennifer Shockley said the arrest is unconnected to a July incident in which two Unalaska teenagers allegedly threatened another teen with a handgun.

The teens were recently charged through the state Division of Juvenile Justice.

In the Monday incident, Shockley said police took the man into custody and seized "several firearms" after receiving a report of his threats.

She declined to release the man's name until his arraignment, which is expected Tuesday. She also declined to name the people and organization threatened.

Shockley said the man has been charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor. She said there is no ongoing threat to community members or local organizations.
