Brevard County, Florida – A Florida man who threatened to blow up his parole office has been arrested, according to the Cocoa Beach Police Department.
An officer at the parole office took the call on Wednesday, according to a CBPD report. “I’m going to blow up the office at eight,” said a man on the call. After saying the same words twice, the man ended the call.
