A Louisiana man was arrested Wednesday for posting threats on social media toward police officers — dubbing Jan. 2 “Kill Cops Day,” according to officials.
Harlan Cyprian, of Covington, allegedly issued the threats in a Facebook post according to the New York Post.
Cops say they were alerted Wednesday morning and steps were “immediately taken to ensure the safety” of local law enforcement — including a “long-time and high-ranking” officer that Cyprian specifically named in his post.
While investigating the threats, authorities found out that Cyprian was also allegedly involved in a break-in at a local justice center, which happened Monday and involved the use of a pickaxe.
He was taken into custody Wednesday and charged with felony terrorizing, simple criminal damage to property and resisting an officer with force or violence.
