Roseville police arrested a man Thursday after he allegedly sent threatening text messages to his neighbors containing images of a gun and ammunition, the Roseville Police Department said.
Wen Jie Huang, 50, was served a search warrant at his home in the 4000 block of Southampton Street, police said in a news release.
The investigation began when Huang allegedly sent text messages to a neighbor, “claiming to harm anyone who entered his front yard,” police said.
The text message contained a photograph of a Glock handgun with magazines and bullets, according to the release.
“Owning a firearm is a serious responsibility and making threats involving a firearm is illegal,” police said.
Huang was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats and booked into the South Placer Jail. His bail is set at $50,000, jail records show.
