A Lexington man is scheduled to be arraigned in Dawson County Court August 8, 2017 on charges of Attempted Theft By Extortion and Terroristic Threats. Thirty-two-year-old Michael Perez was arrested on July 19, 2017 following an investigation by Lexington Police Department.

Court records say Perez allegedly threatened physical harm to a person unless that person paid him $25,000. The person did pay some cash and offered to make payments if no harm was caused to the person or the person’s family. Perez was previously released on 10% of $5,000 bond. The case is being prosecuted by the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office.
