Bloomfield man arrested for alleged terrorist threats
BLOOMFIELD, Mo. -- A 38-year-old Bloomfield man sits in the Stoddard County Jail under a $50,000 cash bond today on a charge of having made a terrorist threat.
According to the Stoddard County Sheriff's Department, Andrew Forrister was arrested yesterday upon his release from a psychiatric facility, where he had undergone evaluation following the alleged threat that was made several weeks ago.
The charges stem from an incident in early June during which Forrister allegedly made a verbal threat to blow up the Lighthouse Christian Center located on Highway 25 just outside of Dexter, Mo. Forrister has been in the care of a mental health facility since the alleged threat was made and was arrested upon his release on Tuesday.
Forrister is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday to answer the charges.
