ARMADA, Mich. (WXYZ) — A 52-year-old Armada man has been arrested for allegedly making terrorist threats, according to Michigan State Police.

A witness reported to police that during a conversation, the suspect stated that he was "bored" and should go to a local business with an AK and 12 rounds.

Police say the witness had knowledge that the suspect owns firearms.

Michigan State Troopers interviewed the suspect. He was then arrested and is now at the Macomb County Jail.

Police say one semi-automatic long gun and a pistol was seized from the suspect's home.

"It is important to note that making any type of threats, even if it’s a “joke,” is a crime and will be investigated," Michigan State Police wrote in a tweet Thursday. "If you see or hear something suspicious, contact law enforcement immediately."
