REEDSBURG, WI (MetroSource-WSAU) A Lake Delton man is facing charges after police say he threatened two employees at a Reedsburg trucking company. Police say Timothy Winchell made a threat towards a person who works at Korth Transfer and later threatened another employee.

The criminal complaint says the threats continued through email, including a picture of Winchell's concealed carry permit and of a small handgun. An email said: “prepare for a brutal s----storm that neither one of us will come out looking good.” One employee said Wichell said it would be a shame if someone came in and shot everyone up.

Winchell faces a charge of making terroristic threats.

It’s not clear if Winchell worked for the trucking company or his relationship to the victims.
