U.S. Court Finds James Henrikson to be a Flight Risk and Threat to Community

Posted: Updated:

James Henrikson will remain in custody after the U.S. Court finds that he is a flight risk and a threat to the community.

Henrikson was arrested in Mandan earlier this month.

Federal agents had acquired a search warrant, and found seven firearms and ammo in Henrikson's home in Watford City.

He was arrested in Mandan and charged with being a felon in possession of firearms.

Tuesday in federal court, a U.S. postal inspector testified to being a part of a multi-agency investigation involving mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.

The witness testified to Henrikson using many aliases, around ten names, most recently the name James Vanderbilt in Bismarck.

The U.S. postal inspector also testified that Henrikson has made threats to several people and that arresting agents say Henrikson made statements about ties to organized crime in California.

Henrikson's defense attorney says he has not been charged in relation to the murder of Douglas Carlile in Washington, or in another investigation regarding a missing person.

He also argued that the witness provided speculative evidence.

But the Court found otherwise.

The federal judge found that due to Henrikson's criminal history, evidence of firearms and threats made, that he is a flight risk and a danger to the community.

He will be held in custody until his next hearing.
