A Three Hills man is about to learn what happens when you make idle threats, especially against a public figure.
 
On February 17, RCMP received information from Calgary Police Service that online threats had been made via Facebook against former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and members of the Lethbridge Police Service.
 
The following day, officers arrested 31 year-old Dexter Shea of Three Hills and charged him with three counts of uttering threats and one charge of breaching his probation. At the time of his arrest, Shea was on probation for prior charges of uttering threats.
 
Shea, who is being held at the Calgary Remand Centre, made his first appearance in Strathmore Provincial Court via closed circuit court TV on February 20.
