Local teacher arrested for bringing weapons on campus thought he was “being watched”


ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL– Authorities are reporting that a Royal Palm Beach teacher who was arrested for bringing a gun and a knife onto a school campus believed he was being watched.
42-year-old Robert Krasnicki was taken into custody on Thursday after authorities discovered he was in possession of two weapons while on the campus of Royal Palm Beach Community High School.
According to the report, the assistant principal noticed a motorcycle that was blocking the “northern gate of the campus,” and contacted a School District of Palm Beach County police officer.
After conducting a license plate search, the officer found that the motorcycle belonged to Krasnicki and made contact with him in his classroom.
Krasnicki told the officer that “he had accidentally parked in front of the gate and would move it,” before telling the officer that he was forced to take his motorcycle because “his ex-girlfriend’s ex-husband had cut his brakes on his car.”
Krasnicki then told the officer that ” he was being watched through his phone and was being listened to.”
The officer recommended that Krasnicki go to the HCA Florida JFK North Hospital for a “mental health evaluation, ” which Krasnicki volunteered to do.
When the officer asked if Krasnicki had any weapons on him, he told the officer that had a concealed handgun in his waistband.
The officer found a loaded Palmetto Dagger 9mm handgun and a pocketknife with a 3-inch blade on Krasnicki.
He was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail.
During a hearing on Friday, a judge set Krasnicki’s bond at $20,000 and ordered him to undergo a mandatory mental health evaluation.
Krasnicki was also ordered not to possess any weapons and to have no contact with any Palm Beach County schools.
