Local Retailer Receives Gun Threat

A disgruntled customer of Sicoir, 1501 E 27th, made a comment over the phone about bringing a gun to the business. Police car 2

“This individual had a disagreement with an employee about a machine they had brought in,” Lance Bickle told Eagle News. Bickle is co-owner of the computer, network and technology support company based in Hays.  “They threatened that they were going to bring a shotgun down to the store,” he said.

“Police officers made contact with the suspect via phone and learned that he was not currently in Hays, nor does he reside in Hays,” According to Police Lt. Brandon Wright.

“We have surveillance systems here and at the new store we are moving into and police have told us they will put our store on their regular patrol route,” said Bickle. “I’m glad we have local police to rely on in a situation like this.”

“Ultimately,” according to Wright, “the suspect was not sought for arrest but the case will be forwarded to the Ellis County Attorney for review and consideration of charges.”

    My husband and I have always been very happy with them so I asked one of their employees about it. He stated he couldn’t say much, but apparently the customer was upset he had to pay the diagnostics fee ($30) after already requesting and receiving a full refund for a special order, which is against their policy. And that warranted a gun threat? What is wrong with people?!?!
