WARSAW — A Warsaw man is facing charges after allegedly making threats toward another male.
William Linley McNees, 49, 504 Hitzler Street, Warsaw, is being charged with possession of methamphetamine, a level 6 felony; intimidation, a level 6 felony; and possession of paraphernalia, a class C misdemeanor.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Thursday, Nov. 29, an officer with the Warsaw Police Department responded to a report of a male subject trying to break into a residence. When the officer arrived, he saw McNees walking off the porch.
The officer patted McNees down to ensure that McNees did not have any weapons. At that time, McNees stated he had a methamphetamine pipe in his coat pocket. The pipe contained a residue which tested positive for methamphetamine.
The officer spoke with the homeowner, who stated that McNees had lived with him for three weeks but never paid his rent so the homeowner had kicked McNees out of the house three days earlier. McNees reportedly went to the home at approximately 11:15 a.m. on Nov. 29 and began beating on the doors and windows, trying to get inside. While McNees was attempting to gain entry to the house he had reportedly stated, “I’m going to kill the m***** f*****,” in reference to the homeowner.
Police spoke with two witnesses. The first witness confirmed that McNees was angry about being kicked out of the house and had come to the house and began beating on the doors and making threats.
The second witness also verified that McNees had been banging on the doors and windows and making threats toward the homeowner.
McNees was booked at the Kosciusko County Jail on Thursday, Nov. 29, on a $5,250 surety and cash bond.
