Federal Grand Jury Indicts California Muslim For Jihad Threats

From Dallas News:
A federal grand jury returned a seven-count indictment Thursday against a California man accused of mailing threats across the country, including a letter to First Baptist Dallas threatening to assassinate pastor Robert Jeffress.

Darnell Ray Owens, 32, was arrested in Tulsa last week and was awaiting extradition to his hometown of Sacramento.

Federal agents say Owens was responsible for mailing an envelope containing white powder to First Baptist Dallas’ post office box on July 10, forcing Dallas Fire-Rescue to quarantine the church employee who opened it a few days later.

The powder was found to be nontoxic and the employee was not injured, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.

“I will assassinate your pastor in the name of Allah,” said a portion of the letter quoted in federal court documents. “I will burn down Christian churches … this is a threat.”…

Federal investigators have traced at least 45 similar letters to Owens, including threats to several LGBTQ groups, police departments and apartment buildings.

Some letters threatened genocide against LGBTQ people, white people and Christians, while others seemed intended to harass Owens’ family members….
