A Southwest Florida man is behind bars after police say he allegedly sent threatening messages regarding a mass killing.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents arrested 33-year-old George Dwyer and charged him with one count of sending written threats to kill, do bodily injury or cause a mass killing.
NBC affiliate WBBH-TV reports that FDLE agents and deputies from the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office made the arrest after being notified about a person making threats on a social media channel.
A search warrant identified Dwyer as the suspect as investigators found a rifle and over 125 rounds of ammunition in his home when they arrived.
Dwyer is being held without bond pending his first court date.
