CATOOSA, Okla. – An Oklahoma man has been arrested after allegedly threatening a mail carrier.
According to officials, James Pinkerton sent an email to Catoosa County, Georgia but talked about the Rogers County sheriff in Oklahoma.
In the email, Pinkerton demanded $5,000 be paid to a PayPal account or he would put a device in a mailbox to “destroy” a mail carrier.
The IP address led investigators to Pinkerton’s home in Catoosa, Oklahoma.
He allegedly admitted to sending the threat.
He told investigators he was mad because a package of gold worth $5,000 was stolen from his mailbox.
Pinkerton says the post office wouldn’t investigate the theft or pay him back.
