Racine sheriff looking for victims of threatening text messages

CREATED Aug. 13, 2013 - UPDATED: Aug. 14, 2013

RACINE - A 52-year-old man from Racine is in custody after the sheriff received several complaints about unwanted text messages and phone calls.

After investigating, Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling saw that the messages were all from the same number, which was registered to William Crockett of Racine.

"The Sheriff’s Office has learned that these are not isolated incidents and Crockett may have been engaging in threatening and harassing behavior for a number of years," Schmaling said. "Crockett may have identified himself as William or simply with his phone number when engaging in this behavior."

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone that has been the victim of threatening or harassing behavior by Crockett, or received unwanted or threatening text messages from the number above to please contact them at 262-636-3323.
