BURNETT COUNTY––A Danbury woman has been charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, a class A felony, after she allegedly held her boyfriend at gunpoint overnight.
Polly Ann Siers, 57, has been confined in the Burnett County Jail since March 21 stemming from an incident last December. She faces up to 60 years in prison if convicted.
According to the criminal complaint, sheriff’s deputies were called by Siers’ boyfriend, Thomas Harris, in December. He told authorities he and Siers were at a family gathering on the night of Dec. 23. and when they returned to her home she became upset and started yelling at him.
She continued to accuse Harris of stealing from her, and when he attempted to leave she allegedly pulled a handgun, a Ruger 38 revolver, out of her pocket and pointed it at his head. Siers then told Harris he was not going
Harris told authorities at one point he had fallen asleep and woke up with Siers holding a knife against his throat.
The complaint goes on to say Harris said the gun was his, and it was allegedly stolen from his house a couple of weeks before this incident.
Harris was able to get out of the house and jumped into his car. He said Siers allegedly fired one round at him as he was leaving. Harris told authorities the bullet went through the back of the passenger door window and he was hit by debris.
He was then able to leave the house and went to his home, then called the Sheriff’s office.
A Burnett County Sherriff’s Deputy met with Harris and observed his Jeep Cherokee did have a hole in the bottom of the back passenger door window. Harris told them he believed Siers was trying to shoot and kill him.
When the deputy called Siers she used multiple expletives when explaining there was no incident earlier. She also reiterated Harris had allegedly stolen from her.
The deputy was told by former Sheriff Ron Wilhelm to not approach Siers at home stating, Burnett County does not have the resources to approach the house.
Siers is also facing misdemeanor drug charges from a 2018 case. This was after the sheriff’s deputies found THC and drug paraphernalia on her. That event stemmed from police being called about Siers allegedly shooting a hole through her daughter’s trailer, which was parked on Siers’ property.
She has been charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, possession of THC, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of an illegally obtained prescription.
Siers is scheduled for a status conference May 14 for both cases.
