U.S. Attorney: St. Louis man threatened to blow up IRS facility

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  The United State’s Attorney’s Office has announced charges against Aaron Johnson, a 20-year-old St. Louis man.

He allegedly threatened to blow up an IRS facility in St. Louis.

Johnson is also charged with lying to investigators who were looking into the threat.

The indictment alleges that on April 14th of this year, one day before the tax filing deadline, Johnson called an IRS facility on South Grand and placed the threat.

Weeks later agents from the U.S. Treasury questioned Johnson, who falsely implicated two other men before finally admitting to making the threat himself.

He now faces counts of threatening to blow up a building and making false statements to federal agents.

If convicted on all charges, Johnson could be sentenced to 30 years in prison.

    I have a hard time disagreeing with Mr. Johnson’s sentiment, given the potential target…..but perhaps he could have channeled his angst in a more productive manner.
