Man arrested for allegedly making threats against sheriff's deputy pleads not guilty

The El Granada man arrested Wednesday on charges of making threats to a police officer was in court Thursday and pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.

Gervacio Ronquillo Jr., 24, reportedly had a beef with a certain San Mateo County Sheriff's Office deputy that he had a previous law enforcement encounter with and vented his frustration about the matter on Instagram, Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti said.

Ronquillo is alleged to have posted on his Instagram account about the deputy that he was “gonna plant a bomb in his patrol car!” and “one day he will get a bullet!” These threats were posted along with a picture of the citation he was issued by that deputy.

Ronquillo was arrested Wednesday by the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office and was in court Thursday where he pleaded not guilty, Guidotti said. He is in custody on $50,000 bail and will return to court on April 1.
