Huntingburg Man Arrested For Allegedly Threatening To Shoot & Kill Wife & Mother-In-Law



HUNTINGBURG (NNDC) – A Huntingburg man is in custody after police say he threatened to shoot and kill his wife and his mother-in-law.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department says 25-year old Donovan Cummins, Jr. is charged with two counts of Intimidation (Level 6 felony), and one count of Carrying a Handgun Without a Permit with a Prior Felony conviction (A Level 5 felony).

Shortly after 12 Noon Monday, DCSD deputies were dispatched to a report of a male suspect who was threatening shoot and kill to his wife and mother-in-law.    DCSD says the threats were made over a cell phone.   DCSD says one victim was located at her place of employment in Jasper and the other victim was in her vehicle travelling in Dubois County when the threats were being made.
Later on Monday, DCSD and Huntingburg police officers stopped Cummins in his vehicle at the intersection of 2nd and Van Buren Street in Huntingburg.
DCSD says a .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun was found in Cummins’ possession of which he did not have a permit.  DCSD says a review of Cummins’ history shows that he has a felony conviction in 2007 which prevents him from carrying a handgun.
Cummins was taken into custody without incident.
Cummins is currently being held on a $10,000 cash only bond pending a court appearance later today.
