LEVITTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — A Long Island man was arrested for allegedly threatening county workers after being told no Social Security check was due to him.
Michael Barber of Levittown was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of making a terroristic threat and two counts of aggravated harassment.
Police say he threatened to "blow up the building" after speaking by phone with a Nassau County Department of Human Service finance manager.
The 62-year-old allegedly called the agency a second time a few hours later and repeated his threat to a case manager. According to police, he said he would "blow up the building with C4 explosives."
Police say there was no indication that Barber had explosives.
His mother told Newsday (http://bit.ly/16kuyRc ) that her son is on disability and suffers from emotional problems.
