DEER PARK, OH (FOX19) - Federal authorities are investigating after a Deer Park man was allegedly found making possible threats against national level politicians, Deer Park police announced early Monday.
"An investigation by Deer Park Police into a minor incident, uncovered a firearm and a possible threat against various national level politicians," department officials wrote in a 6:20 a.m. posting to their Facebook page.
Police responded to a home in the 3900 block of Matson Avenue for a psychiatric emergency the afternoon of Oct. 29, said Lt. Daniel McCormick.
A Deer Park lieutenant on the scene heard a man make threats "toward certain elected officials, and he confiscated a small pistol for safekeeping pending the psychiatric evaluation," McCormick said. "He was concerned enough about what he witnessed to contact federal authorities."
No threats were ever carried out, and no one was hurt.
