A Levittown man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly threatened to blow up the Nassau County Department of Human Services building, cops said.
According to police, Michael Barber, 62, called the office, which is located in Hempstead, around 9 a.m. While he was speaking to a finance manager, he demanded more money be released from his social security check, cops said. After he was told no check was due, Barber allegedly said he was going to "blow up the building."
At 11:10 a.m., Barber called back and spoke to a case manager. He allegedly repeated his threats, saying he was going to "blow up the building with C4 explosives," and he suggested the case manager should leave the building.
At 2:30 p.m., Barber was arrested at his Levittown home without incident, cops added. He's charged with two counts of making a terroristic threat and two counts of second-degree aggravated harassment. His arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.
