    Terrance Upham, 43, parked outside of his neighbor’s house Sunday and connected to the man’s Wi-Fi, WFTS reported. The network was not password protected, the news station reported.

    Deputies told WFTS that Upham then tweeted bomb threats that targeted a Pasco County government building, among other locations, in a series of profanity-laden posts.

    No explosives were found and deputies warned people to protect their Wi-Fi networks, WFTS reported. 

    Upham faces several charges, including making written threats to kill or do bodily harm, false reporting about planting bomb/explosive and drug possession.
