Police seek Olanta man

Authorities: Lockett threatened to blow up CYS office


HOUTZDALE – Auth­orities are still looking for a Clearfield County man accused of threatening to blow up the county’s CYS office.

State police said James Casey Lockett, 35, of Olanta was at a residence in Houtz­dale Borough when he had a confrontation with a caseworker from Clearfield County Children and Youth Services on June 5.

Lockett came out of the house “very angry,” according to the affidavit.

The caseworker told police he made a phone call from the porch during which he allegedly stated “Don’t worry, the neighbors are going to get theirs.”

Later, when he came out of the house again, he asked the caseworker for her name and the address for her office. She reported to police that he then stated, “We have to go in there and blow the place up. Call everyone.”

He reportedly fled prior to police arrival, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Lockett is charged with a felony count of terroristic threats and misdemeanor counts of simple assault and harassment, according to online court documents where the case is listed as inactive.

Anyone with information on Lockett’s whereabouts should contact police at 857-3800.
