WEST MIDDLESEX, Pa. -

A West Middlesex man is facing criminal charges over alleged threats to kill police officers. 

According to Coitsville police, 58-year old David Dunkel made telephone calls to the Coitsville Police Department on Tuesday and left messages, threatening to kill all Coitsville and Campbell officers.

Reports say Dunkel left two messages on the police department’s secretary’s voicemail, four minutes apart.

Tuesday afternoon, Dunkel’s former father-in-law went to the Coitsville Police Department and told officials Dunkel called him several times and appeared to be intoxicated, according to reports.

Dunkel’s former father-in-law said Dunkel left a similar message on his phone.

Police said Dunkel stated that he was going to get his truck doors armor-plated and was going to crash into all the police cruiser he can and shoot any officer he could in order to make national news.

Yesterday afternoon police found Dunkel passed out at his Evergreen Road home in West Middlesex.

He was taken into custody without incident and is facing charges of aggravated menacing and obstructing official business.

He is in being held in the New Castle Jail.
