Casper Man Sentenced to Probation for Terroristic Threats
A Casper man who prosecutors say threatened employees at an area Verizon store was sentenced at Natrona County District Court on Tuesday.
37-year-old Robbey Swank received a two and a half to three year suspended prison sentence and three years probation for making terroristic threats. Swank will also have to complete 40 hours of community service and will not be allowed within 1,000 feet of any Verizon store in the state of Wyoming.
Prosecutors say, after a billing dispute, Swank screamed threats of gun violence at employees of the Eastridge Mall Verizon store in August. Swank later told investigators he was angry that Verizon had applied half of his deposit toward a late payment.
Police found a handgun and three rifles during a search of Swank's home.
Swank is currently being held at the Natrona County Detention Center. Swank will stay at the detention center until he is formally accepted into a Casper Re-Entry Center supervision program.
