Two Delta residents face charges of felony menacing and first degree burglary after allegedly entering a Delta home and threatening a juvenile male with a firearm.
Joe Herbig, 54, and Amber Colburn, 37, allegedly knocked at the door of a home on Crawford Avenue around 4 a.m. March 23.
The occupant opened the door, thinking it was a neighbor. She told DPD investigators Herbig and Colburn entered the home, Herbig with a firearm in the "ready" position. They were reportedly looking for someone who had left that place of residence — someone they referred to as a "dead man" if they found him.
The home's occupants then left to warn the juvenile, arriving at an apartment on Bluff Street just moments before Herbig and Colburn. They allegedly forced their way into the apartment uninvited, where Colburn held the juvenile against a counter while Herbig pointed the handgun above the juvenile's right eye while yelling, "If you keep talking to my daughter I am going to kill you."
The juvenile was shaken but not harmed.
Officer Mark Post, Officer Everett Neil and Sgt. Travis Hawkins arrested Herbig and Colburn a short time later in the 100 block of Main Street. They are free on bond pending resolution of the charges.blog comments powered by Disqus
