SOUTH OGDEN — A South Ogden man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly threatened to bomb a local business the same day.
Dakota Kane McNeeley, 23, was charged Thursday morning with one count of making a threat of terrorism, a second-degree felony.
Police say McNeeley walked into the Mountain America Credit Union located at 455 40th St. in South Ogden and allegedly threatened to bomb the business, according to charging documents. Credit union employees and other customers told police that McNeeley threatened to kill people and that “he would blow up the business.”
The suspect left the scene before police got to the credit union, but police later found McNeeley close by. A witness allegedly identified McNeeley as the one making the threats inside the bank, charging documents say.
While talking to police McNeeley told police he was in the business and yelling “because he felt disrespected,” but denied making any bomb threats, according to charging documents.
Police took McNeeley into custody, and he was booked into the Weber County Jail around 6:40 p.m. Wednesday evening.
McNeeley is being held in lieu of a $10,000 bond, and was still in police custody as of Thursday morning.
He has yet to be assigned an initial appearance date for Ogden’s 2nd District Court.
