SEAMAN, Ohio -- An Adams County man was arrested Monday after police say he threatened officers and a mayor in an 11-page letter in August.
Johnny E. Verax Jr., 45, of Seaman, is charged with five counts of intimidation and six counts of aggravated menacing.
According to police, Verax slid an 11-page handwritten letter under the department's door, threatening four police officers, the mayor of Seaman and a firefighter from the Scott Township Fire Department.
Verax was questioned by police and admitted to writing and delivering the letter.
Police say they are concerned by the letter due to the death of a Kentucky officer and the shooting of a Highland County sheriff's deputy in recent months. The department said they have received other letters, as well.
Verax remains incarcerated at the Adams County Jail.
