Man Arrested by RCMP Accused of Threatening Politicians and Lethbridge Police

A 31 year old man from Three Hills is facing charges, accused of uttering threats against former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi, and members of the LPS.

RCMP have arrested a central Alberta man, accusing him of uttering threats toward some Alberta politicians as well as the Lethbridge Police Service (LPS). Mounties say back on February 17th, they received information from police in Calgary that online threats had been made through Facebook targeting former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and members of the LPS. The following day, RCMP arrested 31 year old Dexter Shea of Three Hills who is now facing a number of charges. Police say at the time of his arrest, Shea was on probation for prior charges of uttering threats. He appeared in court in Strathmore last week. Mounties say the matter is now before the courts and no further information will be provided. - Pat Siedlecki
