Police: Man threatened to blow up buildings

A man who allegedly called a local emergency number and made threats to blow up several buildings will likely be charged with two felony counts of intimidation, prosecutors announced Friday.

At an afternoon press conference, the Montgomery County Prosecutors Office and Sheriff’s Department announced that the Dayton man who made threats against the city is in custody at the Montgomery County Jail and they will pursue felony charges against him.

County investigators executed a search warrant shortly after midnight Friday at 438 Briarwood Ave., in Dayton, and arrested the resident, Kermith Morton, 31, on suspicion of making a terrorist threat, the sheriff’s office confirmed Friday morning.

Morton allegedly called Miami County emergency dispatchers from his apartment in Dayton and made the threats Thursday morning. In a Miami County 911 recording, Morton allegedly threatened to blow up buildings in downtown Dayton.
