Florida man faces terrorism charge after he threatens to blow up sheriff’s office, cops say
By Jessica De Leon
A Bradenton man is facing a terrorism charge after he threatened to blow up the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, according to a probable cause affidavit.
The sheriff’s office has been receiving “disturbing” messages via Facebook Messenger since March from someone who identified themselves as “Ljameer Muhammad,” according to the report.
Detectives eventually identified Jamer Lomant Lawrence, 28, as being the person behind the threats. Last week he was arrested and charged with one count of threatening to commit act of terrorism.
Lawrence is being held at the Manatee County jail on a $20,000 bond. Should he be released, a judge has ordered he be monitored through the supervised release program.
