LINCOLN COUNTY LANDLORD CHARGED WITH UNLAWFUL USE OF A WEAPON

On Friday, March 13, deputies responded to the 100 block of Lakeside Drive, in Lincoln County, for shots fired.

When deputies arrived, the victim stated he was sleeping at his friend’s home to be awoken by his friend’s landlord, 59-year-old Gregory Conrad, of Lincoln County, kicking him in the lower back. When he stood up, Conrad pushed him causing the victim to stumble and was ordered out of the house.

The victim stated once he walked outside the residence Conrad pulled a pistol from his pocked and discharged a round at the ground between them. According to the victim, as he was leaving the property, Conrad fired a second round behind him.

Deputies took Conrad into custody and during questioning Conrad said he did not like the victim and wanted him to leave the property as quick as possible. He acknowledged although he rents his property he should determine who can come and go from it.

Conrad said he fired two shots into the ground in order to speed the process up.

Prosecutors charged Conrad with Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Fourth Degree Assault.  Conrad is currently housed in the Lincoln County Jail.  Honorable Judge James Beck set bond at $25,000 cash only with no contact with the victim, no possession of firearms and no entering or staying on the property where the event occurred.  Other conditions of bond may apply.
