4/19/23 Threats Investigation - VAHS

Media Release - Final

Incident Date: April 19, 2023

Release Date: April 20, 2023

Incident number: VE23-03749

Prepared By: Lieutenant Dustin Fehrmann


On April 19, 2023, the Verona Police Department was contacted and made aware of an individual who made an inappropriate and threatening comment in a friend group text message conversation and VPD started an investigation.  We quickly identified and located the individual who sent the message, a 24-year-old Verona man, at his place of employment.  A threat assessment was conducted, and the man was remorseful for using poor judgment and there was no evidence found to support any intent to follow-through with his threats. The man was not arrested, but since he made a threat which provoked fear, the case will be sent to the District Attorney’s office for criminal charges.  This incident is a perfect example of the If you See Something, Say Something national campaign and we commend the individuals who had the courage to step forward and report the concerning message.
