Wadena Man Charged With Terroristic Threats

WADENA, Minn. (AP) — A Wadena man has been charged with five felony counts for allegedly threatening to blow up several buildings after losing Medicare benefits.

Wadena Police Chief Bruce Uselman tells KSAX-TV 39-year-old Mark Moe said Jared Loughner, the man charged with shooting Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, was his hero.

The police chief says Moe allegedly told relatives he was going to turn small gas tanks in his brother’s garage into bombs. He allegedly said he would use them to burn down Wadena’s courthouse, Social Security office and several churches. He says Moe also threatened to ignite the gas line on Main Street to start a major fire.

Police arrested Moe Jan. 13. He’s charged with making terroristic threats.

Moe remains jailed. His attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday.

    I know Mark very well. He is a mentally challenged person. I sure hope he gets the help that he needs. Jail is not the place for him to be. Praying and thinking of you Mark. Get well soon.

    Red Diapered baby boomers need his Medicare and social security to bribe voters from other countries.

    Now taxpayers can spend even more money paying for an investigation, court costs, correctional people, and “rule 25” anger management.
