A Lindbergh High School alumni made threats on Facebook, threatening to shoot people at his 10-year reunion, causing the reunion to be canceled, police said.
Andrew Brian Middleton, 28, of the 1100 block of Casa Brazilia Court in Mehlville, was charged Friday with making a terror threat.
Middleton posted several threats on his Facebook page and a Facebook page for the Lindbergh High School Class of 2003 10th annual reunion, St. Louis County police said. He posted the threats Wednesday and Thursday.
The reunion, scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14 at Schoemehl’s Southside Grill, was canceled due to the threats.
Middleton was arrested Thursday. Police said they found five firearms in his home, and all were loaded. Investigators also found a variety of ammunition and a 12-inch, fixed-blade knife.
According to police, Middleton admitted to posting the threats but said he was drunk at the time and did not intend to follow through on the threats. He told police he posted the threats “to get a rise out of people.”
A post on Middleton’s Facebook site on Sept. 12 reads:
“You Lindbergh High (expletive) make me sick. Come meet my steel. (Expletive) you. No Fear. I know who is against me, and I know who wants to take me out. So bring it you (expletive) heads. I have the steel to meet you. Bring it. No fear.”
The site also has graphic
illustrations of skeletons and bloody corpses and other violent images and messages.
At one point, Middleton writes that he got an invitation to the Lindbergh High School reunion and said, “I have the address, (expletive) heads.”
Middleton is being held in St. Louis County Justice Center. Bail was set at $25,000.
