Preliminary hearing for man accused of shooting train postponed

JSSP Court Report

The preliminary hearing for a man accused of shooting a rifle at a passing BNSF train last month on Wednesday, July 17, was postponed to 9 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Art Krein, 73, Jamestown, is charged with reckless endangerment and terrorizing, Class C felonies, and criminal mischief, a Class A misdemeanor.

Krein did not appear in court Wednesday but was represented by attorney Scott Sandness.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. June 21. Krein told law enforcement during questioning that he had fired his weapon into the air. BNSF later provided the Stutsman County Sheriff's Office with a photograph appearing to be a bullet strike on the door of a locomotive.
