HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A man is in jail charged with making a terroristic threat after he told a deputy he planned to bomb school buses driving past his property.

Robert Daryl Williams, 58, of Mabank is in the Henderson County Jail on a $250,000 bond.

According to an arrest affidavit, on Jan. 4, a Henderson County investigator was contacted by a deputy with the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office about a threat made by Williams while she was working security at the Henderson County Annex Building.

The deputy said that she had been contacted by Williams who said he needed the fire marshal. The deputy told Williams the marshal was not in the office and to leave his name and number or talk to the sheriff’s office. Williams said he had already been to the sheriff’s office and had been directed to the fire marshal’s office.

The affidavit said Williams said he wanted to speak to Judge Wade Mckinney about the bombs he would use on school buses driving past his property. Williams said he and his neighbor guard the property and would use whatever weapons if need be.

The affidavit said the deputy then escorted Williams from the Henderson County Annex Building for fear of what he would do.

Williams was later arrested and remains in the Henderson County Jail.
