A firearm may have been used in the threat. The police therefore turned out with many officers after that incident on Thursday 1 July. A car was stopped and searched at the intersection of Grotebrugse Grintweg and Peppellaan in Tiel.
The police thought that this car might contain a suspect of the threat in Maurik. Around 6 p.m., officers in bulletproof vests checked a flat on Wilglaan in Tiel, but did not stop anyone. A firearm was not found.
The detective team investigating the attack on De Vries completely searched the house of the 35-year-old in Maurik last night after the man was arrested as a suspect in the De Vries case. It is unclear whether there is a link with the case of Peter R. de Vries.
The police won’t say anything about that. Nor is it why the suspect was released again after that earlier arrest.
