August 2019 MNPD Anthony Warner Report

12/30/2020

The August 2019 MNPD report concerning Anthony Warner is posted below, along with a contextual paragraph.

South Precinct officers went to Ms. Perry’s home on the morning of Wednesday, August 21, 2019, on a report from Mr. Throckmorton that Ms. Perry had made suicidal threats to him via telephone and was sitting on her front porch with firearms. Officers arrived and saw that Ms. Perry did have two pistols on the porch next to her, but they were not in her possession and they were not loaded. She related that the guns belonged to a “Tony Warner” and that she did not want them in the house any longer. “Tony Warner” was not on the scene. As a result of their interview with Ms. Perry, and out of concern for her safety, Mobile Crisis was contacted and Ms. Perry spoke with them via telephone. They determined she was in need of psychological evaluation and she voluntarily went with an NFD ambulance for that purpose. While at Perry’s home, as the report reflects, officers also spoke with Throckmorton, who, they were told, represented both Perry and Warner.

On the morning of August 21, 2019, officers also went to Warner’s address on Bakertown Lane (see report).  No contact was made. They saw no evidence of a crime and had no authority to enter his home or fenced property.

The report was sent to the Hazardous Devices Unit for follow up.

On August 22, 2019, the narrative from the report and Warner’s identifying information were sent to the FBI to check their databases and also determine whether Warner had any prior military connections.

Later in the day on August 22, 2019, the FBI reported back that they checked their holdings and found no records on Warner at all. On August 28, 2019, the FBI reported that Department of Defense checks on Warner were all negative.

During the week of August 26, 2019, the Hazardous Devices Unit made contact with attorney Throckmorton. The recollection of that call is that Warner did not care for the police, and that Throckmorton would not allow his client to permit a visual inspection of the RV.

At no time was there any evidence of a crime detected and no additional action was taken.

No additional information about Warner came to the department’s or the FBI’s attention after August 2019. The ATF also had no information on him. The 1 arrest of Warner occurred in January 1978 for marijuana possession.
