Press Release from Sgt. Andre McConnahea
On Monday (5-6-2019) at approximately 6:37 PM a complainant from Allen County, contacted our office regarding a concerning letter she received at her home, from her ex-husband Robert Miller. The letter was difficult to decipher in parts, but it did reference an unnamed “god damn catholic priest”, and at one point clearly stated “Pandora Gilboa Elementary School” and “we all will blow that god damn elementary school and priest too Kingdom Come.” Deputies did make contact with Robert at his residence last night, and he stated he did not have any means or real intention to attack the school or anyone else, and he was just trying to scare his ex-wife for reasons still unknown. The Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau conferred with the Lima Municipal Court Prosecutors Office this morning and a warrant for Inducing Panic was issued against Robert. At about 2:00 PM this afternoon Robert was taken into custody on U.S. 30 following a traffic stop by the State Highway Patrol. A booking photo is not yet available.
