Florida Keys Man Charged with Threating Officials
TAVERNIER, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Keys man is accused of sending threatening emails to blow up sheriff's office substations.
Jail records show 21-year-old Cole Peacock was charged Saturday with four counts making false reports of planting a bomb, explosive or weapon of mass destruction against state owned property. It's not immediately known if he has an attorney.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says Peacock sent nearly 80 emails that appeared to originate from the Sheriff's Office. The emails threatened one detective, saying "you will die" and there was a bomb at one of the substations.
Peacock was already in jail on unrelated charges when authorities also charged him with ten counts of written threats to kill or do bodily injury to the detective working on his case.
