Deputies say a local Hudson Valley man was arrested and charged with a felony after he threatened to blow up a social services building in Kingston, NY.

Social service workers deal with a lot of delicate situations, as they work closely with families in need, as well as dependent adults living alone. They often assist their clients in dealing with many personal and social problems, so sometimes things can grow quite tense.

A very similar incident happened in 2022, when deputies say another Kingston man threatened to blow up the same building, after a phone conversation with an employee of Ulster County.
