Tyonek man arrested after making threats on Facebook
A Tyonek man has been arrested after making a Facebook post that put many in the village on high alert, troopers say.
Justin Trenton, 26, was arrested Tuesday after Alaska State Troopers received word Monday from the Tebughna School principal that threats made by him against members of the community had led to a lockdown of the school and a village-wide public safety patrol.
According to court documents, Trenton’s post included phrases like “I will be stalking, hiding, waiting for you all.” He references adults in Tyonek, Anchorage and even the village school that he claimed were sending inappropriate texts and photos to his underage daughter, as well as dealing drugs to her and other kids.
Trenton told troopers the post was made to “‘wake up the village’ and make them do something about the perverts that were preying on the children.”
Due to the extremely violent nature of the post, however, Trenton was arrested and charged with second-degree terroristic threatening. He was taken to the Wildwood Pretrial Facility in Kenai and is being held without bail.
