Waterloo man who threatened to kill with a gun released after arraignment
A 31-year-old Waterloo man accused of threatening to kill people with a gun was released from police custody following his arraignment.
Samuel Eckert was allegedly involved in two separate domestic incidents last weekend. The first happened in a moving car and involved a Seneca Falls resident, while the second occurred at a home in Waterloo in front of an 11-year-old child.
Eckert was later found in possession of a firearm and controlled substances after he crashed his car into a Waterloo home and fled. He faces a laundry list of charges including criminal possession of a weapon, harassment, criminal possession of a controlled substance, and child endangerment.
The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports that under the new Bail Reform Act, Eckert was released on appearance tickets and will answer his charges in Waterloo Town Court at a later date.
