CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Waynesboro, Pa., man who was charged with having explosive or incendiary devices in his apartment pleaded guilty Monday in Franklin County Court to possession of prohibited offensive weapons and three counts from a separate case.

Patrick J. Millstreed, 24, of 2 E. Main St., Apt. 203, also pleaded guilty to another count of possessing a prohibited offensive weapon, resisting arrest and making terroristic threats, Assistant Public Defender Paul Rockwell said. He is scheduled for sentencing on Jan. 30, he said.

Millstreed was charged on April 21 by Waynesboro police with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, making terroristic threats and a prohibited weapons offense for an incident in his apartment building. Police received a complaint of threats being made and called Millstreed on the phone, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

Millstreed threatened to "bust a cap" on a borough police officer in the conversation, police said. Officers then went to the apartment building and confronted Millstreed, who refused to give his name and resisted being frisked, police said.

Police alleged Millstreed struggled with officers, spit in one policeman's face and had to be subdued using pepper spray. A butterfly knife was found on Millstreed, police said.

Assistant District Attorney Angela Krom and Rockwell said the threat against a courthouse apparently referred to the Adams County Courthouse and that Millstreed's threat was only made to the woman.

Rockwell said the pleas to the offensive weapons charges related to the butterfly knife in the April 21 case, but to no specific item found in the May 4 search. Millstreed faces up to 17 years in prison when he is sentenced, Rockwell said.
