An 18-year-old man was arrested by Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputies after tweeting that he planted improvised explosive devices in Jodi Arias' courtroom.

Laquint Cherry, whose Twitter account indicates a severe lack of common sense, was ratted out by local TV news station ABC 15, the station admits in a story posted online.

Cherry claims on his Twitter account that he's "Backed and supported by the Taliban, North Korea, Iran & Syria," and includes a whole lot of name-calling -- such as that "pussy nigga" Sheriff Joe -- and talk about explosives and killing people.

What got him a visit from MCSO, however, was his tweet below:



He was found in a motel room near Interstate 10 and 43rd Avenue about 10 hours after posting the tweet, according to an MCSO spokesman.

According to the Sheriff's Office, Cherry initially refused to surrender while inside the motel room, actually tweeting during the little stand-off.

Cherry was eventually arrested without incident and faces a felony charge "related to acts of terrorism," according to MCSO.

MCSO raids a motel near 43rd Ave. and I-10. I don't want to seem completely ignorant about how things work around here, but does Joe have the authority to carry out law enforcement actions in any municipality in the county? Can he go there, like he did at a public library in Mesa a couple of years ago, arrest illegals without notifying the local po-po? Anybody have a good answer for that?

As you can see, law enforcement has their clever ways of catching threat-mongers such as this maggot and Arpaio-haters.  Just you wait and see.  Let's see how this lowlife likes the 4th Avenue jail and then state or federal prison. Maybe he'll be lucky and catch a glimpse or two of his girlfriend Jodi Arias while he's there.

The Joke had all his armored swat trucks on the news for this bust.  Good thing it wasn't like when they raided the house in Ahwatuke with their tank, and the unmanned tank, rolled into a parked car and totaled it, and then the SWAT goobers started the house on fire, and forced a 10 month old puppy back into the house., killing it.


All to serve a warrant for outstanding parking tickets.  I guess we know why MCSO no longer serves warrants!


But in this case, I think the Joker just wanted to get his puss on the news and ride the Arias media circus wagon for a while.

@eric.nelson745 

Yes they can. 

The city is within the county, so the county can technically do anything within their charter as an LEO within it's boundaries, no matter what other boundaries/organizations exist within the county. 

This is why technically if the city Police force refuses to respond on a call, you can still call and hopefully get response from the county police force. County technically oversees city, state technically oversees county

Most however respect each others boundaries unless they NEED to interfere/take action, since it allows them to concentrate resources elsewhere better, but there is no 'law' that states this cannot happen - since if there was, it would make it impossible for a sheriff to come in and take over a city police force that is corrupt for example.

@JohnQ.Public I'd imagine that a REAL law enforcement group would read this guy's other tweets and realized he wasn't really a threat, just a bit of a flake.  Needless to day, MCSO pulled out it's Swat Tanks (sans Steven Seagull, his doughnuts and sex slaves), for a media stunt attached to the Jodi Arias trial.

@JoeArpaioFan  maybe he can share a cell with CJ Joe or Tim Abrahmson (oh, right....Abrahmson will be doing his time in the Dakotas)

MCSO did not do shit, ABC15 did

Maybe you will be lucky one of these days and get a clue as well as some reading comprehension

@WhoKnows Of course SWAT was there because for all they knew the house was wired for sound.  You think they should have arrived with knives and batons instead?  What a dumbass you are.

@WhoKnows  the only thing missing would have been Seagals fat ass parked  atop the lead tank (one fat thigh hanging over the side),  the "Ride of the Valkyries" blasting as he leaves a trail of diesel exhaust fumes (and Cinnabon crumbs) in his wake as his jowls flap with each bump. inspiring isnt it?

"...state technically oversees county."  This is wrong.  The Arizona Constitution was clear that there would not be a State supreme law enforcement agency.  The Sheriff's Office within each of the fifteen counties are the Supreme Law Enforcement within their respective counties.  DPS is restricted to mainly title 28 violations and turn over any title 13 violations to the proper jurisdiction that occur on State Highways.

@WhoKnows @JohnQ.Public Riiight.  Then, if an IED did go off in the courtroom, or if this nutjob did something else later, it would be "why didn't anyone take action?  They were alerted beforehand!"

@WhoKnows Are you suggesting this would have been ignored by other law enforcement agencies?  Flaky (unhinged) people are the ones who follow through on threats like this.  Imagine if this type of info came out during the Boston Marathon and the Agency responsible for following up ignored the threat...

you are blinded by stupidity.

@Flyer9753 good observation. i am seeing a trend here. Joe uncovers a school massacre plot in Mesa (after the Canadians give Joe all the info), Joe uncovers a bomb attempt on his life (after the Flagstaff Post office does the discovery), Joe uncovers a bomb plot on the Arias courtroom (after ABC 15 finds it and gift wraps a media moment for Joe), Joe uncovers a bomb attempt by Seville (after his guys build the bomb and show the guy how to put it on a car and do everything but hook it up for him), Joe uncovers hundreds of sex crimes that were never investigated ................  oops.....he doesnt want to talk about that one (and he didnt uncover that either, once again someone else had to do it for him). if he wants to find proof that Obama isnt a natural citizen.......he better let someone else handle that one too

@JoeArpaioFan @WhoKnows It was a hotel room, not a house.  You proved once again you lack the ability to READ and understand what is printed.


Now Robert, the condo association just said they sent you many letters as your place smells like crap.  Please clean up your depends, little one!

@JoeArpaioFan @danzigsdaddy @WhoKnows You really don't see how STUPID the Joker was in this one, do you?  Now Bob, what are you doing on your next groundhog day's birthday?   Trying to get out of Henderblimp's shadow?
