Albany Times Union - - AROUND THE REGION -

BALL­STON SPA — A for­mer Saratoga County Jail in­mate is back be­hind bars af­ter he called the Sher­iff’s Of­fice and threat­ened to “shoot up every­one” in the depart­ment, of­fi­cials said.

The sher­iff’s of­fice said Michael P. Mills, 32, of Cavendish, Vt., called on Oct. 3 and said he was com­ing to the fa­cil­ity to shoot a depart­ment mem­ber. In fur­ther state­ments, they said, he added he would shoot every­one.

“He must have been un­happy about some­thing,” Capt. Jef­frey Brown said Fri­day. The charge that landed him in jail in the first place was not avail­able.

Af­ter the call, lo­cal au­thor­i­ties worked with Ver­mont State Po­lice to lo­cate Mills. On Tues­day, they took cus­tody of him at South­ern State Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity in Spring­field, Vt. He was taken to Mil­ton Town Court to an­swer a felony charge of mak­ing a ter­ror­is­tic threat, and re­turned to jail on $10,000 bail.
