GEORGETOWN, Del. - A Seaford man was arrested Wednesday after police say he threatened to blow up a state building.

According to the Capitol Police Department, 59-year-old Herbert Higgins Jr. showed up to the Probation and Parole Annex Building on East Pine Street in Georgetown to make payment arrangements at the Office of State Court Collections Enforcement.

During his visit, police said Higgins became agitated and stated, “Well, I’ll just blow the place up.” Shortly after Higgins left the building, he was taken into custody at the Probation and Parole Home Confinement unit on Route 113.

Higgins was charged with terroristic threatening and violating his probation, according to police. He was given a $1,000 unsecured bond for the terroristic threatening charge and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $9,000 cash bond for violating his probation.
