OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — A Sandy, Oregon, man has been arrested by authorities who say he threatened a judge and sheriff’s deputies online.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that several people reported seeing a Craigslist post that featured a rifle pointed at a window and a profanity-laced message aimed at a county judge and deputies.

Investigators determined Jonathan Snyders was responsible and that the judge had recently signed a stalking order against him.

Detectives served a search warrant on the man’s home and seized the firearm that appeared in the Craigslist post.

The 39-year-old was booked into jail on charges of harassment, stalking and violation of a protection order.
