NESQUEHONING, Pa. --- A man behind bars in Carbon County has a $1 million bond after police say he threatened the magistrate hearing his case.

Mohammed Shah, 50 of Nesquehoning, was charged last month.

Magistrate Casimir Kosiolek says Shah faxed a threatening message from jail.

Police say Shah threatened to hunt down judges and police officers in the note.

Due to the alleged threats, Shah's arraignment will be moved to Palmerton.
