UTAH – This past Saturday, Provo Police dispatch in Utah was contacted by an unnamed officer from Colorado regarding a man named Christopher Cleary.
The Colorado officer provided information to Provo Police about threats being posted to Facebook by Cleary.
According to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, Cleary posted the following to Facebook:
“All I wanted was a girlfriend, not 1000 not a bunch of hoes not money none of that. All I wanted was to be loved, yet no one cares about me I’m 27 years old and I’ve never had a girlfriend before and I’m still a virgin, this is why I’m planning on shooting up a public place soon and being the next mass shooter cause I’m ready to die and all the girls the turned me down is going to make it right by killing as many girls as I see”
He also posted,
“Theres nothing more dangerous than man ready to die.”
Utah officers were provided with an IP address that led them to a home address where they believed Cleary would be but were unable to locate him. With help from FBI agents based in Colorado, officers were able to track a phone belonging to Cleary and located him.
It was determined that Cleary had violated code 76-5-107.3, Threat of Terrorism.
During an interview, Cleary admitted to making the threats but claimed to be upset and not thinking clearly when he made them, according to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office. Utah authorities said that due to the threat of public safety, Cleary was arrested following the interview.
Cleary is currently on probation in Jefferson County, Colorado for felony stalking and threatening of women. According to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, the Colorado probation office said they intend to seek an extradition warrant for cleary due to the threats.
