LULING, LA (WVUE) - WARNING: This report contains strong language that some may find offensive.

Making online threats toward St. Charles Parish law enforcement has landed an Edgard man in jail.

A search of his home after the arrest turned up several weapons.

Victor Pablo, of the 200 block of Amp Circle in Edgard is charged with terrorizing and threatening a public official.

He was booked at the St. John Sheriff's Office and later transported to St. Charles Parish.

On Monday, St. Charles deputies started investigating a post on social media threatening police officers.

The post read, "In uh lil while cops in St. Charles are goin to be next. I hope they kill every last 1 of them dirty bitchez."

Given recent events in Dallas and Baton Rouge the threat was considered to be serious and dangerous.

Pablo is being held on a $25,000 bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned on August 23.
