A fourth suspect who posted and sent death threats in response to Sheriff Mike Chitwood’s stance against hate groups has been arrested, this time in Canada.

Tony Stromberg of Calgary, Alberta, was identified as the individual who made repeated threats over Twitter, via email and in phone calls to Sheriff’s Office employees. Stromberg used the name “Condor Calabasas” in his emails, which included threats to murder the sheriff and his family members.

In a follow-up email in March, Stromberg wrote that he had made an “obviously much more credible threat” but was disappointed that “not one police car let alone FBI car has pulled up to my house.”

Detectives with the Calgary Police Service arrested Stromberg on Sunday on a charge of uttering threats to cause death.

He is expected to remain in Canada to face his Canadian charges without requiring extradition to Volusia County.

Stromberg joins Richard Golden of New Jersey, Tyler Meyer of California, and Cristhian Zapata of Connecticut in facing charges for threatening the sheriff's life.

Additional update: Today, Sheriff Chitwood posted a “Loser Alert” advising the public that various hate groups have indicated plans to dump hate flyers in neighborhoods around the country this weekend, Juneteenth. The Sheriff’s Office will be monitoring activity, responding to complaints and enforcing the recently enacted Florida law addressing such conduct.
