An Opelousas man is behind bars and accused of threatening to "blow up" the St. Landry Sheriff's office.
During the early morning hours of December 31, 2012, the St. Landry Parish Sheriff Eunice Substation received a threatening phone call. According to authorities, Christopher Demond Lemon, 31, advised the dispatcher that he was currently getting gasoline and his plans were to allegedly blow up the Sheriff's Office.
