Police in Georgia are working with the U.S. military to investigate a report of “terroristic threats” after a threatening letter meant for an American soldier was found near an army base.
The letter was found on a service member’s vehicle in an office complex in Cobb County near Dobbins Air Reserve on Wednesday, My Fox Atlanta reported.
Police said they believe the author of the note left it there because the vehicle’s license plate identified the owner as a service member, WXIA-TV reported.
A replica of the note has been shared on Facebook.
The letter reads:
“dear american soldier,
death to you coward women child killer and all the american military
mohammad will show no mercy on you
attacks will come full force
death is to come to you”
The threat is being taken seriously and is being investigating by both Cobb County police and military authorities.
The news organization founded by Marines that originally posted the replica of the letter on Facebook has issued a warning to people at Dobbins Air Reserve Base and is asking service members to remain alert.
