Sneads Man Convicted for Threatening to Use Biological Agents and Explosives at Federal Courthouse

Jamie Lee Wambles, 32, was also convicted of a fourth count of mailing threatening communications to a federal agent, involving the potential bombing of the Federal Courthouse in Tallahassee.

In his trial, Wambles was convicted of writing threatening letter from the Jackson County Jail in Marianna

Wambles also wrote a second threatening letter to the Clerk’s Office with a white powder claiming it was anthrax. It turned out to be finely crushed Tylenol pills.

He wrote a third threatening letter to the same Federal Courthouse, this time claiming he would bomb the building unless his demands were met. Wambles was upset with the shooting death of his pit bull during his arrest and wanted the officers responsible to be investigated.

Finally, Wambles mailed a fourth letter to an FBI agent claiming he had the materials to bomb the Tallahassee Federal Courthouse if his concerns were not met.

Wambles faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000.00 fine on each of the first three counts, and up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the fourth count. The sentencing of Wambles is scheduled for August 29, 2013. Wambles is currently serving seven years in state prison on unrelated state firearm charges.
