{{featured_button_text}}

SIOUX CITY | A Sioux City man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he broke two cellphones belonging to a man cooperating with police.

Sombat Yodprasit, 33, entered his written plea Tuesday in Woodbury County District Court to charges of first-degree theft, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, drug tax stamp violation, third- and fourth-degree criminal mischief, tampering with a witness and possession of a controlled substance. A trial date has yet to be set.

According to court documents, Yodprasit smashed the man's cellphone with a hammer on Sept. 22. Later that day, he met the man at Bacon Creek Park, accused the man of cooperating with police and threatened to kill him if he was ever arrested. After searching the victim and finding another cellphone, Yodprasit threw it into the creek, court documents said.

Later that day, police searched a residence in the 3400 block of Morgan Street and found more than 44 grams of marijuana packaged in several heat-sealed plastic bags. -- Nick Hytrek
