Rosemount man charged with false imprisonment

When Rosemount police talked to Jamie Lee Krier on Nov. 25 he told them everything was fine. The woman he was with had a different story, mouthing "Help me' as Krier stood behind her.

Later, after Krier had been arrested, the woman told police he had held her captive, taking her keys and at times keeping her in a basement room while he repeatedly loaded and unloaded a shotgun.

According to a complaint filed in the Dakota County Attorney's office, the woman went to Krier's Rosemount home around 10:30 a.m. Nov. 25 because he had been threatening suicide. She stayed until 2 p.m., but when she tried to leave Krier allegedly blocked her path, dismantled her cell phone and took away her car keys. Before he took the phone the woman was able to send a text message to her father asking him to send police to the house.

The woman told police she was afraid for her life. Police found a shotgun and a bandolier of shotgun shells in the house.

Krier, 35, has been charged with two felony counts of false imprisonment as well as felony-level counts of assault and making terroristic threats. He has also been charged with a gross misdemeanor for interfering with a 911 call. Each of the false imprisonment charges has a maximum sentence of three years and a maximum fine of $5,000. The assault charge has a maximum sentence of seven years and a maximum fine of $14,000 and the terroristic threats charge has a maximum sentence of five years and a maximum fine of $10,000.
