Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies searched her property for the firearm registered in her name, Capt. Garo Kuredjian of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department tells PEOPLE.
The Melrose Place alum, 56, was not home when officers arrived Tuesday.
Capt. Garo Kuredjian says the search was prompted by Locklear’s threats against Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies who arrived at her home in late February due after they received a domestic violence call at around 9:40 p.m.
Locklear allegedly verbally threatened deputies saying she would “shoot them if they ever came to her house again,” authorities said in a press release by the Thousand Oaks Police Department,
Those specific threats against deputies were what prompted the search to seize the firearm, Kuredjian tells PEOPLE. He says detectives did not find it and adds Locklear does not have a domestic violence restraining order against her.
The actress’ brother called 911 after he allegedly saw her and her boyfriend, Chris Heisser, fighting.
Locklear was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic battery, as well as three counts of battery on a police officer after she “became combative with the deputies,” Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said last month.
