Prosecutor Wants Kurts To Return To MN Due To GPS Issue

(Northfield, MN) — A prosecutor is calling for a St. Olaf College student accused of plotting a “mass casualty” event to return to Minnesota. Waylon Kurts, who is charged on several counts, including terroristic threats, returned home to Vermont last week after his mother posted bail. However, his court-assigned GPS monitor’s signal malfunctioned. Assistant County Attorney Kathryn Burbank filed a motion to have him returned to Rice County. Kurts’ attorney says the GPS monitor issue has been resolved, which according to Burbank means the state has accepted they won’t be able to track him. Burbank also pointed out that there are 250 addresses within forty-miles of Kurts’ home that are licensed to sell firearms.
