For weeks, Stauch’s family hoped authorities would find the youngster, but everything came crashing down on Monday during a press conference.

While authorities didn’t go into detail about what evidence led to these recent charges, they did explain that they still haven’t found the body of the youngster. Albert, Letecia’s husband, was shocked to hear about the arrest.

 

Californian UPS Driver Threatens Mass Shooting

SUSPECT: Thomas Andrews

CHARGES: Making criminal threats, DUI, evading police, several weapons violations

DATE OF ARREST: March 1

THE DETAILS: A UPS worker in California has been arrested by police after allegedly threatening to commit a mass shooting. According to authorities, the ordeal began when the suspect, Thomas Andrews, started text messaging his employer. While talking to his boss, Andrews suddenly began making statements about planning a mass shooting at their place of business, a UPS store in Sunnyvale. Rather than wait, the employer immediately reached out to the police about his employee and the messages. The police took action and decided to approach and question Andrews. When a traffic cop saw the suspect’s vehicle driving down the road, he attempted to pull him over. That’s when Andrews took off and initiated a car chase, which was eventually ended by California Highway Patrol. Authorities promptly learned that Andrews is a legally registered gun owner who reported owning one rifle and four handguns. Upon arriving at the suspect's home, they found even more evidence to suggest the UPS driver may have carried out his plans. In all, cops found five tactical-style rifles, three handguns, a shotgun, about 20,000 rounds of ammunition and body armor. They also discovered a tactical backpack full of supplies right next to the suspect’s front door.
