Kerrville resident, Jeremiah Krakowski, was arrested for causing the Police to react to statements he made on Facebook threatening to kill the President of the United States and any “cop” that comes to his residence.
On March 2, 2011, the Police Department’s Special Crimes Unit was notified by the San Antonio Police Department Intelligence Unit about the threats. On March 3, 2011, the Special Crimes Unit and the U.S. Secret Service, located Jeremiah Krakowski at a local bar in Kerrville and detained him for investigation. During the interview Krakowski admitted he made the threats also referred to himself as a “terrorist.”
Krakowski gave the Secret Service consent to search his vehicle, residence and place of employment. The search resulted in the seizure of a laptop computer, a desktop computer; an AR-15 .223 caliber rifle with two loaded magazines and a Glock 9mm handgun with two loaded magazines.
Krakowski was ultimately released pending investigation. The Secret Service is expected to present their investigation to the United States Attorney in San Antonio.
The KPD Special Crimes Unit investigators presented the information to the Kerr County Attorney who authorized the filing of a complaint against Krakowski for Terrorist Threats. An affidavit was filled against Krakowski with Municipal Court Judge Mark Prislovski, and an arrest warrant was issued. A $50,000 bond was set by the court.
