Utah Man Accused Of Threatening To Blow Up County Building

May 3, 2018

A 56-year-old Utah man is facing a terrorism-related charge after he allegedly threatened to blow up a county government building in Provo.

Miguel Gedo made his initial court appearance in Fourth District Court Wednesday on a charge of second-degree felony threat of terrorism.

Deputy Utah County Attorney Mariane O'Bryant says in a probable case statement Gedo became agitated and aggressive when he visited the Utah County Recorder's Office in the county administration building on Feb. 2

She says he allegedly threatened to come back and blow up the administration building, warning that it would be a "bloodbath."

It's not clear if Gedo has a lawyer or will be appointed one before his preliminary hearing Judge Thomas Low set for May 30.
