BAXTER, Minn. — A postal worker is behind bars Wednesday after allegedly making terroristic threats at the Baxter Post Office Annex and for having a grenade with him while he was on his mail route.
The postal worker was on his mail route south of Brainerd in his sports utility vehicle, when authorities located him, Exsted said.
Exsted said authorities investigated and learned the man did possess a grenade-type device in his SUV. The bomb squad worked on the grenade and learned it was a real inert military grenade, which means it lacked the explosive components to make it detonate.
The name of the postal worker was not released Wednesday.
