Man Threatens to Kill Detective and Blow up Sheriff’s Office, Detention Center

BROOKSVILLE – With violent attacks against law enforcement officers occurring more often around the country, agencies are taking steps to prevent their own from becoming a statistic and incarcerating those who make threats.

A St. Petersburg man found himself behind bars on Sunday, after threatening to kill a Hernando County Sheriff’s Detective and blow up the Sheriff’s Office.

The investigation began on August 12th, 2015, after 69-year-old Ernest Morgan called 911 eight times and threatened to kill Detective Chris Kraft over issues involving his Granddaughter’s case. Morgan made the following statements on a recorded line: “I got a 357 magnum and I’ll shove it right up his god damn bowel and blow his f**king head off!” “I’ll blow your god damn station up, I’d blow his f**king brains out!” “I will blow you motherf**kers up!” “I will kill you and anybody else!” “I will bring my god damn shotgun and blow that motherf**king jailhouse that you are in!” “I wanna come up there and sit right in front of your door with my shotgun, 357 magnum, hollow points. I wanna blow his brains out, and I’m gonna blow out yours too!” “I’m in a bad f**king mood. I’m coming up there; I’m going to your office. I want that god damn detective, you understand?”

Detectives obtained a warrant for Morgan’s arrest, but they were unable to locate him for more than three years. On September 9th of this year, Deputies caught up with Morgan at a Chevron gas station in Brooksville and took him into custody.

Morgan is charged with Making Bomb Threats and Threats to a Public Servant. Morgan posted a $10,000 bond the following day.

  • One way street. Had deputies threaten my life on line, a felony. Took the evidence to the State’s Attorney. They refused to prosecute because they didn’t feel I was afraid, which is NOT an element of the crime. The SA was making new law to let the damned sheriff off the hook.

    • Nailed it! Been saying we need Sheriff Judd here in Hernando Co. Maybe then he’ll drain the cess pool of crack heads and losers here, and clean up the Sheriff’s Dept. and make Hernando a great county to live in again. Judd is a man with a backbone and not bought by anybody.

  • If this guy was a real threat don’t you think they would have caught him before 3 years. Hernando Sheriff’s Office is quite amazing. They showed up one day at my house in all black and a black vehicle that didn’t have any signage on it and they’re standing out front of my house with their sunglasses on. So I didn’t know who they were I got my gun, put the garage up, chambered a bullet and said can I help ? One yelled gun and rolled out while the other one rolled to the other side. They weren’t even paying attention, they were at the wrong house but they were serving a felony warrant. So you show up to serve a felony warrant and you’re not paying attention to what’s going on around you. Kind of stupid don’t you think?
