West Virginia State Police in Huntington arrested a man for allegedly threatening to blow up a law firm.
Troopers arrested Barry Joseph Blevins, 48, of Huntington and charged him with terroristic threats, destruction of property, possession of a controlled substance and harassing phone calls.
Troopers responded to a law firm in Huntington on Wednesday after bricks had been thrown through a window and threats had been made to use a gas line to make the building explode, according to court documents.
The complaint states that the owner of the law firm and the suspect had a previous run-in. It states that the victim had told Blevins to stop taunting and upsetting a young child at a residence in Huntington. The victim stated that Blevins made threats toward the victim and the victim's family since then.
Blevins is being held at the Western Regional Jail on a $75,000 bond. He is a convicted felon, according to the jail.
