A Home Depot worker has been arrested for threatening to detonate bombs inside the stores unless he received $2 million in ransom money, the New York Daily News reports.
Daniel Patrick Sheehan, 50, threatened to shut down all Long Island stores on Black Friday by detonating three pipe bombs inside Home Depots, the Daily News wrote.
Police found one working pipe bomb.
After lowering his ransom demand to $1 million, Sheehan sent another letter saying he would pick up the money while being “wired up like a Christmas tree,” the Daily News reported, citing a complaint unsealed in Long Island Federal Court.
Sheehan was caught after police traced his phone number when he called to complain that the money drop was crawling with cops in late October.
