LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The arrest report for Todd Pomeroy reveals that he was near St. Viator Catholic School on the day that he was arrested.

Counterterrosim detectives with Las Vegas police department became aware of threatening phone calls to multiple people associated with St. Viator on April 29. All the people who received phone calls knew it was him because he did not hide his phone number. The school decided to close for the day. Pomeroy reportedly called 6 people and left 9 messages.

Pomeroy had previously been employed by St. Viator but was terminated on June 1, 2017. Almost 2 years later, it appears that he was still upset about the termination.

On April 28, he left a message on a school employee's phone shortly after 1 p.m. saying that he was going to the school's campus to "stir some shit up." He also stated he would not go to jail ever again.

At 5:30 a.m. April 29, he left a voicemail for a female employee at the school and said he was going to "tweak her nose." He also called her names before hanging up.

One of the employees then spoke to Pomeroy and he allegedly said that the situation would end up with someone pointing a gun at him but he would not hurt any children or any adult that has not wronged him.

Later that day, Pomeroy called another employee and stated that he was going to the school the next day and would call the staff out. He then said that he expected the police to show up and thing that he was half crazy. He also made another statement about not wanting to hurt kids, but that he would make the news. He then stated that he was "setting things up" and he knew what time he would be going to the school, what he was going to do, and how he would get out of there.

In addition, Pomeroy allegedly said that if a cop drew a gun on him, he would shoot the cop in the leg so that they would use deadly force against him.

Soon after, detectives arrived at St. Viators and saw a red jeep circling the parking lot. They followed the Jeep and eventually pulled it over. Pomeroy was taken into custody without incident. He told the detectives that he went to the school to confront the principal and admitted to leave messages.

He was arrested on 3 charges at that time and transported to Clark County Detention Center.

Since then, 3 more charges have been added to the list.

Pomeroy appeared in a Las Vegas courtroom today. His bail was increased to $50,000. If he posts bail, he must be agree to high level electronic monitoring. He also must stay away from St. Viator employees.

Pomeroy was employed at Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas at the time of the incident. He is no longer employed with the school.
