Federal authorities are searching for a man who has at least eight guns registered to him and has threatened to kill President Obama.
The man, identified as Daniel James Murray, is charged with making threats against the president of the United States.
He recently withdrew $85,000 from a Utah bank and told a teller: “We are on a mission to kill the president of the United States,” according to court papers.
Murray is originally from New York, but was seen several times in late May in St. George, Utah, making bizarre statements at a bank.
According to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Utah, Murray opened an account at Zions First National Bank on May 19 with a $85,000 check.
“With all this mess going on under President Obama with banks and the economy, I’m sure if citizens happen to lose their money, they will rise up and we could see killing and deaths,” he said, according to the criminal complaint.
On May 27, he returned to the bank and tried to withdraw $12,000, but lacked proper identification.
“Not to be disrespectful, but if I don’t get this money, someone is going to die,” Murray said, according to the criminal complaint.
