MORGAN, Utah (AP) - The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says a recently bailed suspect is threatening two deputies and their families.

Sheriff’s officials say a Layton man sent text messages last week threatening to find out where the deputies live and kill their families.

According to the law enforcement agency’s Facebook page, a deputy stopped the suspect Wednesday afternoon in a residential area in Mountain Green because his vehicle was not registered.

A second deputy then arrived as backup.

Deputies say the suspect was cited and his car impounded.

Officials say the texts were sent hours later.

The suspect was arrested Thursday night but made bail.

Sheriff’s officials say they are asking the public not to share information involving deputies and their families.

The Utah State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the case.
