If You're Going to Mail Crazy, Threatening Letters From Downtown, Don't Make Copies
This just in from Dallas Police spokesman Senior Corporal Kevin Janse: About two hours ago, officers were sent to the Bank of America building at 901 Main Street. Something to do with "a man sending letters from that location." Janse explains why below:
The suspect had made copies of a letter in the building that warned of impending disastrous events to occur in New York and Los Angeles in the near future. The suspect was then mailing the letters to prominent people around the country.
The suspect stated that he dreamed of these events happening in the future, and he was trying to warn everyone. The suspect did not appear to be a threat to himself or others and was released.
Alas, the man is not a local: Says Janse, he's a resident of Sierra Vista, Arizona, and was just filling some spare time while waiting for a bus back home. Tourists.
