Man takes assault rifle to Delaware Park
By Carl Kanefsky

A Wilmington man faces drug and weapons charges after police find him with an assault weapon at Delaware Park.

It was 11:00 Sunday night when Brandon Buchanan called the casino's security, demanding they remove one of his relatives from the casino, and threatened to go to the casino with his assault rifle.

About an hour later, a State Trooper found Buchanan in the casino parking lot.

The trooper did a pat down search of Buchanan and found a full magazine containing twenty rounds of ammunition in Buchanan’s pants pocket.

A search of Buchanan’s vehicle uncovered a Hungarian AMD-65 assault rifle from the backseat, as well as 2.5 grams of marijuana and a pipe.

Police found another assault rifle and more ammo in Buchanan's home. He's being held on lack of bail.
