A perpetrator who is spreading menacing threats through phone calls and stealing identities is being sought by authorities. A suspect has been identified and brought to court. James Thomas Andrew McCarty, 22, living in North Carolina who previously resided in Kayenta, Arizona was arrested on December 14, 2022. McCarty is under investigation by The Federal Bureau of Investigation after a court indicted him on 26 counts of criminal charges involving False Statements, Cyberstalking, and Aggravated Identity Theft. At this point, the charges filed against him are mere allegations and he is presumed innocent until evidence proves guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

On December 20, 2022, a detention hearing took place in Charlotte, North Carolina and he was remanded to the District of Arizona. McCarty allegedly called police departments and schools in Georgia, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana, and Oklahoma from January 17, 2021, to June 30, 2021. The origin of the phone calls was traced to Kayenta, Arizona, and McCarty sent various threats saying that he possessed bombs, propane bottles, and tanks.

Two calls mentioned disturbing threats about school shootings in Westfield, Indiana, and Vinita, Oklahoma. Then, McCarty threatened that he would shoot the police if they respond. Identity theft was enmeshed with disturbing threats when it was found out that McCarty assumed the names of actual individuals in making phone calls to announce false emergencies and dangerous threats.

The threats unnerved panic-stricken victims which prompted the police to hunt down the culprit. If he is found guilty and sentenced to federal prison, McCarty could face 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. For Cyberstalking, False Information, and Hoaxes, it would cost 5 years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000. Lastly, each count of aggravated identity theft has a penalty of a mandatory two years’ consecutive imprisonment and a fine of $250,000. It was also reported that McCarty has pending federal charges in the Central District of California. In light of recent tragedies concerning violent attacks, the authorities pursue such threats seriously to protect the public and maintain peace and order in the community.
