Troopers started investigating Saturday afternoon after a concerned soldier from the Army National Guard base in Latham contacted them. An investigation then determined Greene made a terroristic threat while on base. A release did not identify Greene’s connection to the base, but a spokeswoman later confirmed Greene was a soldier.

A search of Greene’s residence then uncovered an illegally possessed assault rifle, a shotgun, and five large-capacity ammunition feeding devices, police said.

Greene was also found in violation of an active order of protection barring him from legally possessing a firearm, police said.

Greene was processed and turned over to the Albany County Correctional Facility pending arraignment.
