Two tweets revealing a possible bombing of the Trump rally in Waterbury, Connecticut caught the attention of the United States Secret Service and compelled them to contact the Connecticut State Police.
The state police said the first Twitter post said, “Is someone going to bomb the Trump rally or am I going to have to?”
A second Tweet from the account warned a friend of the suspect to have his family members leave the rally so they wouldn’t be hurt.
Work by detectives identified the origin of the post from the account of Sean Taylor Morkys in Waterbury, Connecticut.
Waterbury police, the State Police Counter Terrorism detectives and United States Secret Service special agents identified Morky and took him into custody around 5pm.
Morky was charged with first-degree threatening, inciting injury to person or property, and second-degree breach of peace.
He was released on $25,000 bond and is to appear in court May 4th.
