April 01, 2005|By Josh Mitchell | Josh Mitchell,SUN STAFF

A Harford County man has been charged in connection with a series of threatening e-mails to school officials and local and state politicians.

Police issued an arrest warrant yesterday for Douglas Andrew Kukucka, 42, who worked in the facilities department of the Harford County school system until he was fired in 2002.

Kukucka allegedly sent e-mails to officials accusing the school system of conspiring to conceal environmental hazards, police say. An e-mail to a Baltimore TV station last week alluded to a pending school "massacre" in Harford County. Other e-mails contained threats against the children of elected state officials, according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

Kukucka faces two counts of identity theft, four counts of misuse of electronic mail and one count in connection with spam deterrence.

Kukucka is described as white, 6 feet, 175 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He may be driving a 1990 blue Ford Mustang with Maryland plates GGG 544. Anyone with information is asked to call the Harford County Sheriff's Office at 410-838-6600.
