NEW CITY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A Nanuet man is accused of making death threats on Facebook against the governor of New York, the mayor of New York City and several members of Congress, Clarkstown Police said.
Two rifles, bayonets, ammunition, a sword, knife and body armor were recovered at Lawrence Mulqueen’s home, police said.
Mulqueen, 49, was arraigned Thursday on charges of making terroristic threats, illegally possessing weapons and harassment.
Police were called Wednesday afternoon by Mulqueen’s landlady, who said he’d been harassing her. She tipped them to Mulqueen’s alleged threats, made on a Facebook page under a pseudonym, police said.
“Sort of the rantings of a disturbed, angry mind,” Fran Pillersdorf told CBS 2’s Derricke Dennis. “I was aware and scared.”
