NY man accused of threatening Cuomo, Bloomberg

Posted: Updated:

NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) - Police have accused a man of making death threats on Facebook against the governor of New York, the mayor of New York City and several members of Congress.

They say they found two rifles, bayonets, ammunition and body armor at his suburban home.

Clarkstown police say 49-year-old Lawrence Mulqueen of Nanuet (nah-newe-EHT') was arraigned Thursday on charges of making terroristic threats, illegally possessing weapons and harassment.

Police were called Wednesday afternoon by Mulqueen's landlady, who said he'd been harassing her. They say she tipped them to Mulqueen's alleged threats, made on a Facebook page under a pseudonym.

Police say the FBI helped with the investigation.

A town court clerk says no lawyer is listed for Mulqueen in court records. He's being held until a court date Monday.
