OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas City man has been charged with threatening a Jewish congregation in Kansas.

Forty-year-old Brian Wachter made a first court appearance Thursday on a single criminal threat count. Wachter is jailed in Johnson County, with bond set at $25,000. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/28T0Fy3) reports that prosecutors accused Wachter of making an unspecified threat last month against the Jewish Congregation Beth Shalom in Overland Park.

Court records say Wachter was born in Pittsburg and spent time in Las Vegas before living more recently in Kansas City.

Wachter is jailed in Johnson County, with bond set at $25,000.
