Durham Man Arrested for Mailing Bomb Threat Hoaxes

RALEIGH – The United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina, Robert J. Higdon, Jr., announces that MICHAEL DEXTER BRODIE was arrested today, September 20, 2018.

On September 6, 2018, a federal grand jury sitting in the Eastern District of North Carolina returned an indictment charging BRODIE with two counts of mailing bomb threat hoaxes, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 844(e). As stated in open court during the initial appearance, the alleged conduct includes bomb threats received by government offices in the Raleigh area, resulting in multiple evacuations. If convicted, BRODIE would face as to each charge a maximum term of 10 years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and a term of up to three years supervised release following any term of imprisonment.

The charges and allegations contained in the indictment are merely accusations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

Investigation of this case is being conducted by the United States Postal Inspection Service and Raleigh Police Department, with assistance by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
