(USA Today) Federal prosecutors announced on Friday that a 41-year-old Toledo, Ohio, man has been charged after making threats against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and illegal possession of ammunition.

Ireland was charged with “one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, one count of being a fugitive in possession of a firearm and one count of making interstate threats,” according to the Department of Justice.

According to the criminal complaint, at the end of July, the U.S. Capitol Police received a report from a person who’d perceived a Facebook post from Timothy J. Ireland, Jr. as potentially threatening against Ocasio-Cortez.
