A Detroit man has been indicted for making terrorist threats against the county jail.
A Wood County grand jury on Wednesday indicted Ziaire Ezera Webb, 28, who is in jail on other charges, for making terroristic threats, a third-degree felony; telecommunications harassment, a first-degree misdemeanor; and two counts inducing panic, both fourth-degree felonies.
On July 29, Webb allegedly threatened to commit an offense that would affect governmental conduct and caused a reasonable amount of fear of the imminent commission of the offense.
The government entity was the Wood County jail, according to Wood County Prosecutor Paul Dobson.
On July 28 and again on Aug. 14, Webb is accused of causing the evacuation of a public place by initiating or circulating a report of an alleged or impending fire, explosion, crime or other catastrophe while knowing the report was false and the threat pertained to the use of a weapon of mass destruction.
“There were no buildings actually evacuated,” Dobson said, but bomb-sniffing dogs were called in on at least one occasion.
No explosive devices were found, he said.
Webb allegedly made the threat via telephone.
He was arrested Sept. 28 for domestic violence. Bond for all cases has been sent at $52,500, 100% required.
