MADISON, Neb. – A northeast Nebraska man is scheduled to be arraigned in Madison County Court on Tuesday after being charged with eight felony counts related to alleged threats made with a stick of dynamite.

37-year-old Kelly Red Tomahawk, whose listed home address is in Beemer, was arrested last week. Authorities received reports of two women being held against their will by Red Tomahawk, who was driving them into Norfolk. All three reportedly got into the car at a home in Randolph where Red Tomahawk and one of the women were living.

The caller, who was not in the vehicle, said Red Tomahawk, had threatened to light the dynamite if law enforcement was called, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.

Madison County Sheriff Todd Volk stated in a press release last week that one of the passengers was texting details to the caller.

Authorities stopped the vehicle, with deputies holding the car at gunpoint. Nebraska State Patrol technicians cleared and secured the vehicle before testing the alleged dynamite. NSP officials determined that the item was indeed an explosive device.

Troopers also reportedly located three knives, a glass pipe with white residue and a glass container with suspected THC wax. According to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the pipe tested positive for methamphetamine.

After the Madison County Sheriff’s Office interviewed Red Tomahawk and both women, Red Tomahawk was arrested and charged. He stated that he had been in an argument with one of the women, but he claimed that the dynamite was not his, and that he did not threaten her.

Red Tomahawk is due in Madison County Court Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. He faces two charges of terroristic threats, two charges of false imprisonment, possession of a destructive device, possession of a controlled substance, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person.
