SERT Team Called To Waynesboro For Armed Standoff

WAYNESBORO – A man is in custody after allegedly getting into a domestic dispute that necessitated road closures and SERT (Special Emergency Response Team) being called in today, 24 May 2022.

Christopher Adam Repman is being held on $5,000 monetary bail in Franklin County Corrections custody after being charged with two counts of F3 terroristic threats.

Waynesboro Police were called to a domestic dispute around 3am today and found three women and two men engaged in a dispute. After cooling down the situation, WPD left the scene with no charges filed. The dispute flared up again between 6am and 7am.

Waynesboro Police were called to the scene at 7:18am to find the victims outside. One of the victims related to police that WPD had been to the residence previously that day and that Repman was inside with a gun. Additionally, Repman allegedly said that he would shoot two of the women if he could get away with it. Upon further questioning by the victims at that time Repman insisted he was serious. When Repman pulled out a black and purple pistol, one of the victims asked him if it was in case “someone came into the house,” Repman allegedly said it was “in case those two heffers come downstairs”. The man then took that as a threat against two of the victims. 

Additional inquiries from police yielded comments that there was a domestic dispute earlier that night and that Repman had used homophobic slurs against the victims and threatened to kill them. When the victims heard Repman allegedly load his gun, they waited until he fell asleep to leave the house and call the police. Attempts by police to reach Repman over police intercom and over phone failed. SERT and other departments were called in to which Repman was apprehended with no injuries. 

Christopher Repman is charged with two counts of F3 making terroristic threats and is being held on $5,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is set for May 31, 2022.
