MCSO: Boston man threatens to bomb sheriff's office

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A man, who deputies say threatened to bomb the Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office, was tracked down on the other end of the country by the sheriff's deputies.

MCSO said Robert Paul Menard, 47, was indicted by a Maricopa County grand jury on August 19, after Maricopa County deputies traveled to Boston, Massachusetts to find him.

Menard reportedly made the threats several days ago, one of many in recent months, according to the sheriff's office.

In April, a bomb headed for Arpaio's office was intercepted by U.S. Postal authorities in Flagstaff. [Related: MCSO: Package sent to Sheriff Arpaio could have injured, killed]

In May, a threatening message was inscribed on the new sheriff's office headquarters at Fifth Avenue and Jackson in downtown Phoenix. [Related: Bomb threat unfounded at MCSO construction site]

Cesar Nunez, threatened to kill Arpaio and was arrested by deputies who traveled to California and worked local authorities to charge the suspect in June.

In July, Fred Cusick, of Peoria, threatened to kill the sheriff and he was arrested. Later that month, a Canadian man threatened to murder Arpaio and his family and then bomb his home. The crime is still under investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, MCSO said. [Related: Deputies arrest Peoria man for YouTube threat against Arpaio]
