A Salem Township man was charged on Wednesday with repeatedly threatening to kill a state trooper and jailed on $100,000 bail.
On March 5, police were forwarded a voice mail from Andrew Lamb Fulton, 29, of 223 David Drive, who requested that a woman either harm or hurt Trooper David Williams “or that she find someone that could harm/hurt” him, Trooper Owen Leonard wrote in an affidavit of probable cause.
It wasn't the first allegation of Fulton making threats against Williams, it said.
Fulton was charged with terroristic threats and harassment last month by state police for a Facebook post that said Fulton wanted to “kill” Williams, according to police.
The threats stem from drug charges that Williams filed against Fulton in October, according to police.
The March voice mail was left on the phone of a woman, who passed the message on to Williams.
Fulton allegedly said in the message “Do what you need to do,” “Try to get back at him,” “Is there any way you can hurt him?” and “Do whatever you need to do or find someone who will.”
He confessed to leaving the voice email from a pay telephone while at a Greensburg bowling alley, according to police.
Fulton is charged with retaliation, criminal solicitation, terroristic threats and harassment in connection with the voice mail. A March 25 preliminary hearing is scheduled.
In the Facebook post case, court records indicate that Fulton was released on $100,000 unsecured bail as part of an agreement between prosecutors and the defendant. He waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Jan. 28.
Fulton is scheduled to enter a plea Wednesday in the Facebook post case. A June trial is scheduled in the drug case.
