JOLIET, Ill. (STMW) – A 65-year-old man upset with reductions to his benefits allegedly threatened to kill employees at the Social Security Administration this week.

The Department of Homeland Security took Frank Logan’s reported threats seriously enough to have local police obtain a warrant for Logan’s arrest, Joliet Cmdr. Brian Benton said.

“We were contacted by a DHS agent who said Logan has called the office in Wilkes Barre, Pa., when he was unhappy his check was reduced and became irate at the answers he received,” Benton said.

Employees notified DHS and because of Logan’s criminal history, the federal agent asked Joliet police to pursue the case.

On Friday, Det. Paul Rodriguez obtained an arrest warrant against Logan with a $100,000 bond. Logan is being sought for harassment by telephone, a class 4 felony that can carry a one- to three-year prison sentence and $25,000 fine.
