A 28-year-old suburban Chicago man has been charged with sending more than 25 threatening letters to Illinois public officials, including former Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley.
The FBI says Ronald Haddad was arrested without incident Tuesday at his River Forest home. He's charged with one count of sending interstate threatening communications, a felony.
Authorities say from December 2007 to last month, Haddad sent letters containing white powder, packages with shotgun shells and threatening e-mails. No injuries were reported in any of the incidents.
He's expected to spend Tuesday night at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago before appearing in federal court Wednesday.
It was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
