FARMINGTON HILLS — A Farmington Hills resident was arrested after allegedly making threats toward residents in Dearborn.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Carl David Mintz, 41, of Farmington Hills, in connection with making terrorist threats, according to a press release.

Mintz is accused of making a threatening post on social media against Palestinian people in the city of Dearborn at approximately 1 a.m. Oct. 11.

An investigation by the Dearborn Police Department led to Mintz’s arrest Oct.12.

Mintz has been charged with making a false report or threat of terrorism, and malicious use of telecommunications service.

He was arraigned Oct. 14 in 19th District Court and was given a $500,000 cash/surety bond with a GPS tether.

Mintz was also ordered to have no weapons and no internet access.

A probable cause conference was scheduled for Oct. 24, after press time, before Judge Mark Somers.

“Threats against any person in Wayne County will not be tolerated and will be thoroughly investigated by the relevant police agency. These threats will be prosecuted by this office if, based on the investigation, it can be proven in court beyond a reasonable doubt. Wayne County is very diverse, and we take these threats very seriously,” Worthy stated via the release.

Mintz’ attorney could not be reached for comment by press time.
