South Riding man facing terrorism charges for threatening emails

Deputies with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the April 4 arrest of Saad Lodhi of South Riding after he allegedly sent threatening emails to several Fairfax County officials.

NBC News 4 has reported that the arrest warrant included the following quote from an April 3 email: “Dear Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, just to give you an update, we are now proceeding to the next phase of warfare. I just submitted a concealed weapons permit … and once that clears through, I have a special gift for Fairfax County commonwealth attorney – click click click……” Earlier emails sent to county staff were included as well.

Lodhi had filed separate cases with both the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County Police Department, which were later dismissed.

Lodhi is charged with felony “terrorist threat in writing.” An arrest warrant was served April 4 and he most recently appeared in court April 10 for a bond hearing. A preliminary hearing on the case is scheduled for June 19. Having been denied bond, he is currently in Fairfax County Jail.

Terrifying?  Yes!  Terrorism?  Come on, let’s not over use the word.  For example, what is the stated goal of the supposed terrorist?  What, no goal; well then it doesn’t fit the definition of terrorism.
