Warrant issued for Joplin man charged with terroristic threats

January 16, 2014:  A warrant has been issued for a Joplin man charged with terroristic threats after he failed to appear in court today.

Court documents show it was a Facebook post by Keefe Rearrick that led to extra safety precautions at Joplin Schools in October 2012.  Detectives say Rearrick posted a statement on Facebook referencing the blowing up of mines on a playground.

Rearrick posted bond and was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, but failed to do so.

Bond is set at $2,500.

 

October 12, 2012:  New details are released about the threats that led to Joplin Schools going into lock-out mode on Wednesday.

Court documents show it was a Facebook posting that led to extra safety precautions taken by the district last Wednesday.

Keefe Rearrick, 21 of Joplin, is charged with terroristic threats, and has bonded out.  He is scheduled to be in court sometime next week.

Detectives say Rearrick posted a statement on Facebook referencing the blowing up of mines on a playground.

The JPD notified the Joplin Schools superintendent who then made the decision to keep students indoors until Rearrick could be taken into custody.

 

October 11, 2012:  Keefe D. Rearrick, 21 of Joplin, has been charged with terroristic threats.

Joplin Police say threats made on October 9 by Rearrick prompted the investigation.

Police also say that steps taken by Joplin Schools led to the arrest of Rearrick, who is currently being held in the Joplin city jail on a $3,000 bond.

No specifics on what threats have been made have been released at this time.

October 10, 2012:  Joplin police say they have a person in custody in connection with a threat to the school district.

Police say they received the vague threat this morning and that the district went into "lock out" mode, which puts tighter limits on people entering or leaving the buildings.

Schools did dismiss on time today.

No word on the person in custody or the precise threat.

Joplin Schools posted the following statement earlier this afternoon on their Facebook page:

"We were recently informed that an individual made statements that could be perceived as a potential threat against Joplin Schools. The police investigated the incident and now have the individual in custody. We do not believe our students were in danger but, as a precaution, this afternoon we temporarily suspended outdoor activities and secured entrances. Schools have now resumed normal operations. We appreciate the Joplin Police Department's quick response."
