Kishwaukee College student arrested over threat

MALTA — A Kishwaukee College student was arrested Tuesday after making a threatening comment to a college employee, police said. 

Kevin A. Wilkins, 29, of the 800 block of West Lincoln Highway, was charged with disorderly conduct, which typically is punishable with probation or up to three years in prison, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office. A Kishwaukee College employee told DeKalb County Sheriff deputies Wilkins had said: "Half of DeKalb will be a crater by tomorrow anyway, maybe this place too; I haven't decided yet," police said.

Wilkins told the deputies he made a statement to that effect, sheriff's Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said. Deputies found no evidence in Wilkins' apartment, car or belongings that suggested he had the means to carry out the threat, Dumdie said.

Wilkins was taken to DeKalb County Jail and is expected to appear in court Wednesday.
