Oklahoma City police arrested a man who is accused of making threats on his Facebook page against a local news website.

According to police, on Thursday, October 2, a person using the Facebook account under the name “Jesse Tedford” made a post on his timeline in reference to a local newspaper and its website. The author claimed that the website censored his posts. He then stated that he wanted to “place some C-4s around their building.”

The Facebook post also reads, in part, “Oh, I should get a lot of …uhh.. what it's called? Blackcats? Get a bunch of big roll. Lay it all around the building at night all connected. Then an hour after people go in to work, light it all up. Revenge! Imagine the horror on their faces! LOL!”

Police said they were able to identify the suspect as 29-year-old Clarence Eugene Tedford. Tedford was arrested at his home in Del City, on Monday, October 6.

Tedford, police said, confessed to making the threats against the news website. He said he was mad for being “censored,” and that mentioning bombs and explosives in his Facebook post was a way to show the website how mad he was.

Tedford was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on charges of bomb threat and violation of the Computer Crimes Act.
