Wareham Man Charged with Making Terroristic Threats
WAREHAM — On Wednesday at about 8:15 a.m., Wareham Police Detectives and Patrol Officers served a search warrant at 39 Onset Avenue. The raid was conducted as part of an investigation by detectives into an individual suspected of calling in terroristic threats to several business locations in Wareham.
The incidents occurred over the summer, and as part of their investigation, detectives obtained a search warrant for the home and an arrest warrant for Domenic Albanese, 18, of 39 Onset Avenue.
Armed with the warrant, officers went to the home, knocked and announced their presence, however no one would answer. Officers attempted to open a door, but found it to be barricaded. A second door was broken down, and officers located Albanese inside, placing him under arrest.
During the process of breaching one of the doors, a detective was injured by a piece of wood that became imbedded in his arm. He was later treated and released from Tobey Hospital.
Albanese was transported to the police station where he was booked and then taken to Wareham District Court. He is being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing on October 15.
The crime of terroristic threats is a felony that has a penalty of up to 20 years in the state prison.
