City man threatens Social Services staff; weapons seized

CUMBERLAND —A 32 year-old Cumberland man was arrested Monday in connection with threats he had allegedly made against employees of the Allegany County Department of Social Services.

Christopher David Shrader was charged with arson threat, second-degree assault and and related offenses when he was taken into custody on arrest warrants obtained by C3Iā€ˆinvestigators.

Shrader was taken before a district court commissioner for an initial appearance. He remained jailed Tuesday morning at the Allegany County Detention Center on $75,000 bond pending his next court appearance.

On Monday the Cumberland Police Department received a complaint from the Department of Social Services that Shrader had made threats to blow up the building at 1 Frederick St. and had threatened individual employees.

Investigators with C3I interviewed witnesses and learned that Shrader had an assault rifle and handgun he alleged he was going to use to carry out his threats.

Police obtained a search warrant for Shrader’s residence. Entry into the residence was made by the Cumberland Police Department’s CERT team.

Investigators recovered an AR-15 rifle, a .32-caliber revolver, a large amount of ammunition, numerous knives and related items, and suspected marijuana and crack cocaine.

No explosive or bomb-making devices were discovered.

Assistance during the search was provided by the C3I Narcotics Task Force.

Additional weapons and drug charges are pending continuing investigation by  Cumberland Police and C3I.
