A Gladewater man was held Friday in the Gregg County Jail on bonds totaling $200,000 after authorities said he broke into his neighbor’s house and later threatened to kill his neighbors because they reported him to police.

According to police records, Amos Edward Simmons, 34, was served warrants Thursday charging him with burglary of a habitation and retaliation in connection with the alleged crimes.

Simmons was originally arrested April 8, under suspicion of criminal trespass, after a neighbor in the 100 block of Meridian, between Gladewater and Liberty City, said she confronted him in her master bedroom, telling him to leave her house.

I don't think his bond would have been as high if he had just made good his threat.
