Police say man made Internet threats
by UPI

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- A Florida man found with weapons and ammunition in his home was charged with making threats about re-enacting the Virginia Tech massacre, police said.

Police claim Calin Chi Wong, 20, of Homestead, Fla., admitted to making threats overt the Internet under the screen name "Humanabc," The Miami Herald reported. Wong is free on $7,500 bond.

Homestead police said the Clackamas County (Ore.) Sheriff's Office learned of a March Internet chat in which Wong allegedly threatened that "he was soon to re-enact the Virginia Tech" massacre in which 32 people died before the gunman killed himself.

Police said Wong agreed to allow them into his home last week, were officers said they saw "several long guns piled up on a shelf" in plain view, said police spokesman Capt. Tom Foglia. Thousands of rounds of ammunition and a number of gun magazines also were observed, the Herald said. The weapons and munitions were seized.

While at the Homestead police station, Wong admitted to making threats to other people over the Internet, as well as buying and trading guns and ammunition more than 20 times during the past year, the police report said.
