LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – A man arrested on multiple criminal charges reportedly recorded himself throwing a rock at the residence of Governor Joe Lombardo’s stepdaughter.

Stanley Allen Weaver III was arrested on March 4 and faces charges of stalking, aggravated stalking, destruction of property and trespassing. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center and his bond was set at $50,000.

According to a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department report, Summerlin Area Command patrol officers were dispatched to a “suspicious situation” at approximately 6:21 p.m. on March 3. The calling party reported that an unknown black male adult was “banging on her door yelling that Governor Joe Lombardo had killed someone.”

Doorbell security camera footage captured the suspect asking for the Governor and videotaping himself while doing so. When police arrived, the suspect was gone. The officers documented damage at the scene, including a broken window on the east side of the home.

Lombardo’s stepdaughter told police that she had seen an Instagram post made by the suspect in which he posted video of himself throwing a rock at her home. In the video, he reportedly said, “I hate to do this but I’m coming for you.”

She said that Weaver also attempted to call her via Instagram on March 1 but she did not answer. According to an arrest report, Nevada State Police assigned to the Governor’s protective detail were aware of Weaver’s claims and similar online posts.

LVMPD Counterterrorism detectives were informed about the situation and responded to the scene. They confirmed that video on Weaver’s Instagram account showed him throwing a rock through the window of the residence.

Further investigation into Weaver’s online activity revealed additional posts and threats about Lombardo’s family, as well as pictures of LVMPD officers with their friends and family. Other posts also accused the Governor of murder, saying that he “is playing God by killing the man and erasing his birth records.”

Weaver tagged the Governor and others in his posts.

“I’m going to keep doing (expletive) like this around the city until this message is heard,” Weaver wrote. Investigators said that there are over 35 Instagram posts by the suspect accusing the Governor of killing a man in Las Vegas.

Police identified Weaver’s behavior as “clearly showing violent mobilization and motivation indicators which represent the process an individual typically follows before committing a violent act.”

A search of his criminal record indicated at least half a dozen prior arrests in California on charges including arson, larceny, destruction of property and harassment. Weaver has a hearing in Clark County Justice Court scheduled for March 12.
