A Findlay man was indicted by a Hancock County grand jury for making terroristic threats from a co-worker’s Facebook page last week, according to County Prosecutor Phil Riegle.

Andre L.D. White, 25, was charged Tuesday with making a terroristic threat, a third-degree felony.

On Jan. 4 in Findlay, White allegedly used a co-worker’s Facebook account to post a comment regarding a suicide bombing, Riegle said.

The co-worker’s Facebook account was previously logged into on White’s phone, Riegle said.

The post said, “F— it, Imma go and be a suicide bomber. Boom bitches. This one is for Allah,” the prosecutor said.

Riegle could not comment on where the two individuals work, but said the co-worker lives in Hancock County.

Riegle said an investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.

“Local and federal law enforcement has looked into (the matter) and feels that there’s no current threat to local or civilian populations,” Riegle said.

White is being held in the Hancock County jail.

White was convicted in 2015 of stealing a pickup truck, according to court records. Judge Reginald Routson sentenced him to 12 months in prison.

He was also sentenced to community control sanctions for two counts of trafficking in drugs in 2011, and later had his probation revoked by Routson and served a jail sentence.
