Man faces property damage charges

A Mahtomedi man made an initial appearance in 10th Judicial District Court last week on charges of first-degree damage to property and possessing a pistol or assault weapon after a previous felony conviction.
According to court documents, the charges against Timothy Oliver Frappier stemmed from damaged Frappier allegedly did at the complainant’s home.
The complainant called the Washington County Sheriff’s Office after finding items in their yard destroyed and the contents of their garage in disarray, court documents said. Damage was estimated at $2,000.
Documents said deputies entered to the home’s basement and saw an individual identified as Frappier. Deputies handcuffed Frappier when he refused to cooperate with them. Deputies found an AR-15 xM4 rifle loaded with 24 rounds with one in the chamber and a 9mm Smith and Wesson handgun with one round.
Frappier allegedly admitted to breaking into the home and owning both guns, court documents said. Frappier claims hallucinations caused him to destroyed the items. He also told deputies the devil told him to kill the complainant, court documents added.
The complainant told deputies they were concerned because Frappier’s behavior had been escalating recently.
Frappier is not allowed to possess firearms due to a previous conviction.
