Threats led to drug charges

Erik Boerboon told police he just wanted his money back, but the way he went about getting it has landed him in trouble with the law.

According to a complaint filed last week in the Dakota County Attorney's office Boerboon, 25, of Prior Lake, threatened a Farmington woman and her daughters with a stun gun and pounded on the windows of their locked car as they took refuge inside March 28.

The woman told police she and Boerboon had argued because he accused her of stealing from him. She said he yelled and swore and knocked glass vase off of a table at her home. She said he pointed the stun gun in her direction and activated it, causing it to spark.

Boerboon told police he confronted the woman after noticing his wallet was missing. He said she gave the wallet back but that there was money missing.

Boerboon denied pounding on the woman's car window.

When police searched Boerboon at the Dakota County Jail they found a bag that contained a trace amount of methamphetamine.

If convicted on a felony charge of making terroristic threats Boerboon could face up to five years in jail and fines of up to $10,000. A felony drug charge carries the same potential sentence. Misdemeanor charges of domestic assault and improperly using a dangerous weapon each carry a potential sentence of up to 90 days and fines of up to $1,000.
