MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Great Lakes Radio – An Upper Michigan man has been arrested for terroristic threats and the attempted manufacturing of explosive devices.
The 28-year-old man from Rapid River was arrested after a joint investigation by State Police at the Gladstone Post, FBI, and ATF. The incident occurred in Delta County’s Masonville Township.
