SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - A 51-year-old Plattsburgh man has been charged with making a terroristic threat to a state office in Saratoga Springs.

Saratoga police say in a news release that Michael Ormsby was arrested on Saturday on the felony charge. He was also charged with misdemeanor aggravated harassment.

Police say Ormsby called the state Office for People With Developmental Disabilities in Saratoga several times last week and threatened that employees would be “splayed down in a rain of gunfire.”

Police say Ormsby had worked in several facilities the agency operates, although not the one in Saratoga.

He was arraigned and sent to the county jail on $50,000 bail. It could not be determined if he has a lawyer.
