A Miami Gardens man was sentenced to more than two years in jail after officials say he mailed hoax threats to two Broward County government offices, the Department of Justice announced.

Tarvess David Taylor, 26, who pled guilty to the five counts, was sentenced to 27 months in prison, according to the department. Taylor was also ordered to pay more than $35,000 in restitution to the Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue and the Broward County Fire Rescue, who investigated the alleged threats.

Both locations were closed while a hazmat team inspected the safety of the facilities.
