Nanuet Man with Weapons Cache Pleads Guilty to Facebook Threats


The Nanuet man who hurled death threats at a slate of politicians—and consequently had his home raided by the FBI—pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges, according to reports.

Lawrence Mulqueen, 50, used his Facebook page last February to publicly menace elected officials. Investigators said Mulqueen wrote he “[could] not wait to start killing” multiple congress members, as well as a Governor and Mayor, adding that their “dirt nap [was] coming very soon.”

Mulqueen also advised readers on his Facebook page to purchase rifles and other firearms, police said.

“Use blades when you can to conserve bullets,” he added.

Authorities raided Mulqueen’s house soon after the threats were uncovered, and discovered a horde of weapons—including swords and bandoliers. Police were first alerted about Mulqueen when his landlady, with whom he had been feuding, reached out.

Mulqueen will be sentenced in October, and will likely serve between 12 and 18 months, the Associated Press reports.

District Attorney Thomas Zugibe noted Mulqueen’s threats, whether real or posturing, had to be taken seriously.

“In our fast-paced world of status updates and tweets, behavior of this type must be treated seriously and investigated promptly to ensure that all threats or indications of potential violence are mitigated and do not escalate,” Zugibe said. “Overt threats of the sort made by this defendant against our elected leaders are especially troubling and must be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law.”
