EMMAUS, [PA]--Will Michael admits that leaving a profanity-laced death threat on the voicemail of a federal ranger involved in a Nevada cattle ranch standoff that made national headlines "wasn't such a good idea." But the Emmaus man — the only person arrested among the hundreds who left phone messages for Chief Ranger Mike Roop following the altercation at Cliven Bundy's ranch — won't serve a long prison sentence for the crime. On Tuesday, a U.S. District Judge in Philadelphia sentenced Michael, 24, to one day of imprisonment, to be followed by three years' supervised release, and a $200 special assessment. Under federal sentencing guidelines, Michael could have been sentenced to 15 to 2

MARION, [NC]--A seemingly serene setting on Quail Hollow Drive in Marion may have been the training ground for a violent plot. The idea of it makes neighbors even more nervous about Mark Schmidt. Schmidt now faces a federal firearms charge and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Wednesday morning at the federal courthouse. According to the federal complaint, a witness told federal investigators that Schmidt stockpiled weapons and ammo at his parent's house. As a convicted felon, he's not allowed to have that kind of arsenal. Schmidt is charged with possession of any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce by a convicted felon. The

FOND DU LAC, [WI]--The serial bank robber who gunned down Wisconsin State Patrol Trooper Trevor Casper and a Wausaukee man on March 24, 2015, was a "lone wolf" survivalist who was stockpiling weapons and ammunition in preparation for a "zombie apocalypse," those close to him told investigators. Steven Snyder, who was 38, also spoke of going out in a "blaze of glory" and "righteous suicide," documents released Thursday night by the state Department of Justice show. Snyder's estranged wife, Stacey, told authorities that he had even "built a tunnel under his house and kept dried goods and survival items in it," the records show. "Snyder had many guns ready for 'when society collapsed,'" the doc
