Charges stayed against man accused of threatening Facebook employees

Jordon Stallwood of Abbotsford instead pleads guilty in separate incident

An Abbotsford man who was previously charged with making gun and bomb threats to Facebook staff had those charges stayed in court last week, but he pleaded guilty to another offence in a separate incident.

Jordon Stallwood, 21, pleaded guilty to uttering threats on March 2 of this year in Abbotsford in relation to a dispute over a trailer that he had bought.

He received a suspended sentence, which means he will receive a criminal record and go to jail if he violates the conditions of his one-year probation.

Stallwood was charged in June 2017 after the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) was contacted by Facebook employees.

They indicated that their corporate offices in Menlo Park, Calif., had received threatening messages from a user who was apparently upset over the removal of a post he had made.

The workers said the individual had threatened to cause damage and to kill people with guns and bombs.

The investigation led police to a residence on Hill Tout Street in Abbotsford, where they arrested Stallwood and searched the home.

Stallwood was subsequently charged with two counts of uttering threats and three counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Those five charges were stayed July 10 in Abbotsford provincial court.

Stallwood was previously charged in relation to a May 2017 incident in which he threatened the lives of West Vancouver police officers via Facebook.

He pleaded guilty in that case and was sentenced to one year of probation and a 10-year firearms ban, according to the provincial court database.
