Moss Point Mayor Mario King receives threat demanding money

Moss Point Mayor Mario King has received a threat today that was sent through email, demanding money or explosions will be organized in the city.

Mayor King posted a picture of the email to his Facebook page, alerting residents to “not meet in groups as we must take all foolishness and foolish acts including mass threats serious.”

The email reads: “Hello to the mayor of Moss Point, we demand $100,000, send to a PayPal account. If you don’t send it during this week, we’ll organize several explosions in crowded places of the city this month. It’s not a large amount to pay for citizen’s safety. Quick deal guarantees no problems in the city.”

Mayor King says this is the first threat he’s received that has asked for money. The threat has been sent to mayors across the country.

The incident is currently under investigation by the FBI.
