Landlord charged after dispute with tenant

A 69-year-old landlord who allegedly leveled a firearm at a tenant during a dispute at a Boyd Road property on Friday is free on bail pending a future arraignment, police said.

Richard MacMillan, a Hollis resident who owns the duplex at 2 Boyd Road, where the alleged confrontation took place, was charged with one count of criminal threatening with a deadly weapon.

Police said that the unidentified tenant, who was not armed, retreated into the house and called 911 when MacMillan allegedly pulled the gun and threatened him.

Officers took MacMillan into custody without incident shortly after 1 p.m.
