A Rothschild man has now been charged after a threat last week which lead to a high school lock down.
Marcos Garza appeared in Marathon County Court yesterday afternoon. The 18 year old has been charged with a felony count of threat to injure, plus misdemeanors for carrying a concealed weapon and using a computer message to threaten.
Last Friday, Garza allegedly sent several text messages to a 17 year old student at Wausau West threatening her and friends. The student told school officials who, in turn, alerted area law enforcement. The school then went into soft lock down until Garza was taken into custody less than two hours later.
Garza’s bail was set at $25,000 and he is not allowed to contact the victim or possess a fire arm. His next court appearance is scheduled for October 17 for a preliminary hearing.
