Fort Collins Police Arrest Man Accused Of Threatening School

October 28, 2015

Fort Collins police have arrested a man accused of threatening to burn down buildings at a community college.

The Coloradoan reports that 29-year-old David Moscow was arrested Monday after police executed a search warrant of his home and found a semi-automatic rifle, a handgun, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and illegal drugs. Police say he made indirect threats to Front Range Community College's Larimer County campus.

A psychologist notified police last week that Moscow had become increasingly upset about his perceived treatment by the school. Moscow voluntarily left the school in 2012. In 2014, he left a harassing voicemail for a counselor. He recently reapplied to the college.

Police say Moscow told a counselor last week that if the school didn't re-admit him, he was going to burn it down.
