Arrest Made In Casper Web Threat

UPDATE 3:40 p.m. Monday – 

The Casper Police Department reports federal agents in Oklahoma took a subject into custody who is believed to be the person responsible for the threatening blog posts on the morning of January 14, 2013.

The suspect was not in Wyoming at the time of arrest. It is believed at this time that the subject did not have any ties to Wyoming and the post was randomly directed towards Casper.  In a statement, Casper Police officials said 

The details are still unfolding so we have little else to offer at this time. We do feel confident that the threat has been handled.


Original Story – Casper Police are investigating a series of threats made on a website, claiming area residents might be in danger. A police spokesperson said the web posts made non-specific threats to the general public in Casper, referencing the use of firearms, as well as unconventional weapons such as baseball bats and kitchen knives.

It appears the initial threat may have come from the website 4chan.  (See Photo)
