WHITE PLAINS — A man from the New York City suburbs made death threats on Facebook against Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, several members of Congress and all supporters of President Barack Obama, police said Thursday.
When investigators searched the man’s home, they found two rifles, bayonets, ammunition, body armor, a sword and a knuckle knife, said Clarkstown police Sgt. Glenn Cummings. The weapons were illegal because the suspect was a convicted felon, Cummings said.
Lawrence Mulqueen, 49, of Nanuet, was arraigned Thursday on charges of making terroristic threats, illegally possessing weapons and harassment.
Cummings said police were called Wednesday by Mulqueen’s landlady, who said he’d been harassing her.
The landlady tipped police to Mulqueen’s alleged threats, which Cummings said were made on Facebook under a pseudonym.
