Jury Finds New Holland Man Guilty Of Threat

A Lancaster County man has been convicted of threatening to bring a gun and shoot up the Mennonite home in Manheim Township last March. Police say 66-year-old Mark Wingerd of New Holland was denied a volunteer position with the home after he became upset when he learned he would not be able to bring more than 2-dogs to the facility. Officers say when he was told that security wouldn’t let him in, he responded by saying that Pennsylvania is a ‘open carry’ state and threatened that he would shoot anyone tried to stop him. A jury found Wingerd guilty of one count of making terroristic threats. He will be sentenced after a background check.
