Rockford Scanner™: Arrest made in Recklessly Endangering Safety




Arrest made in Recklessly Endangering Safety

On December 9, 2020 at about 11:20 a.m. Janesville police officers were dispatched to a domestic disturbance at a residence on West Memorial drive in the City of Janesville. The initial information received to dispatch was that David K. Krause (56 years old) had left the residence with two handguns and was going to Elkhorn to kill someone.

Arriving officers spoke to an adult female and male victim who live with Krause on West Memorial. They reported he became enraged over a broken snow plow part and was going to Elkhorn to kill the person who made the repair. Krause loaded a .357 and 9mm handgun into holsters and commented “Someone is going to die today.” As the victims tried to intervene, Krause threatened them with the guns and then left. Officers obtained a description of Krause’s vehicle and called him on the phone. He answered and said where he was, in Walworth County.

The Walworth County Sheriff’s Office was notified and deputies were able to locate the vehicle and conducted a high risk traffic stop on County Highway H in the Town of Sugar Creek before getting to Elkhorn. Krause was taken into custody and two loaded handguns as well as other weapons were found in his possession. Krause was turned over to the Janesville Police Department for further investigation.
