A Dryden man was arrested early yesterday morning (October 15) for making terroristic threats to the Wal-Mart on Bennie Road in Cortlandville.
The Cortland County Sheriffs office says it responded to the Wal-Mart just before 2:00 yesterday morning, where several employees reported speaking to a male on the phone who was threatening to shoot everyone in the store.
With the assistance of the Dryden Police Department, the Sheriffs Investigative team located and arrested 32-year-old Veasna Pederson at his residence in the Village of Dryden.
Deputies now say Pederson was upset with the store’s customer service that he received over the phone.
He was ultimately arrested for Making a Terroristic Threat, a Class “D” Felony, and Aggravated Harassment in the 2nd Degree, a Class “A” Misdemeanor.
No weapons were shown or found during the investigation.
Pederson was arraigned in the Town of Cortlandville Court and remanded to CCJ on
no Bail on the Felony charge and $1000 cash/$2000 bond on the Misdemeanor.
