ELLSWORTH — An Ellsworth man was arrested Friday after allegedly posting threatening messages directed at his former employer on social media.
The Gouldsboro Police Department received a report from a local business on Nov. 7 that Angel Luis Valle Rodriguez, 47, of Ellsworth and Puerto Rico was communicating threats to his former manager.
Police said some of the images showed Rodriguez, described as a “disgruntled former employee,” holding a handgun, which was later determined to be a BB gun.
Police conducted an investigation and, with the assistance of the Ellsworth Police Department, executed a search warrant on Winkumpaugh Road in Ellsworth.
Rodriguez was charged with Class C terrorizing and transported to Hancock County Jail.
