Monroe man charged with terroristic threats


POLK TWP - Monroe County District Attorney detectives charged Gregory Schlegel, 43, of Polk Twp. for allegedly making threats on January 11, to assassinate the first person who bids on his property during a Sheriff’s sale scheduled for February 22.

On January 16, detectives received a complaint that Schlegel contacted a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office property clerk and made the “assassination” threat during their conversation. When the clerk attempted to lighten the mood of the conversation by replying “Well you know what I look like, don’t shoot me.” Schlegel replied “I’m an ex-marine, I hit what I am aiming at.”

Charges were filed against Schlegel, including threats and other improper influence in official and political matters, Terroristic Threats and Obstructing administration of law or other governmental function.

Schlegel is currently out on $20,000.00 unsecured bail and will appear for his preliminary hearing on a later date.
