Threats in Ross County lead to arrest, BCI and FBI investigations
Sept. 16, 2019
A 21-year-old Ross County man was charged this weekend with making terroristic threats that authorities say involved planning violence against several people.
Michael Graham, whose address was unavailable, was arrested without incident Saturday by the Ross County sheriff's office. He was charged with making terroristic threats, a third-degree felony, and inducing panic, a first-degree misdemeanor.
The sheriff's office and Chillicothe police began investigating Graham on Friday when they received credible information that Graham was threatening to carry out violent action on a future date. The plans included a specific time and location, though the sheriff's office is not revealing when that was.
The threat was considered so serious that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation were brought in to help investigate the case.
The sheriff's office is not releasing any other details about the nature and scope of Graham's alleged plan.
Graham is being held in the Ross County jail. His bond has been set at $100,000.
