CAPE GIRARDEAU — A 23-year-old man faces charges and possible deportation for threatening to blow up the police station and a federal courthouse in Cape Girardeau.

The suspect, 23-year-old Pedro Quino-Teodoro , is charged with two counts of making a terrorist threat and one count of attempted obstruction of a governmental function.

The incident began Saturday during an assault investigation. Police say Quino-Teodoro threatened to kill an officer and his family if immigration authorities were contacted.

Immigration officials confirmed Quino-Teodoro's illegal status. He was arrested, then said he would destroy the courthouse and police headquarters, according to officals.

He is jailed on $100,000 cash-only bond.
