In a story that I read in the Times Union, 27-year-old Daniel Timmerman, of Washington, New Jersey was angry because he didn’t like the way that a family court case was being handled in Schoharie, by the DSS. Before he made the trip to Schoharie for a scheduled meeting, he allegedly made a phone call threatening to blow up the building. According to authorities from the Schoharie County Sheriff’s Department,Timmerman’s child lives with a relative in the area.

On friday, he was arrested at the Schenectady Amtrak station, after he got off of the train. He was charged with making a terroristic threat and misdemeanor aggravated harassment. After he was arraigned in Schoharie County, Timmerman was sent to Albany County Correctional Facility, because he couldn’t post $15,000 bail. He wasn’t sent to Schoharie County Jail because that building remains closed due to last summer’s floods.
