Winnebago County inmate accused of threatening Jewish center

WHITEFISH BAY, Wis. (WBAY) A federal grand jury indicted an inmate at the Winnebago County Jail for making threats against a Jewish community center in the Milwaukee area.

The indictment against Chad Grubbs, 33, alleges he mailed threatening letters three times to the Harry and Rose Family Jewish Community Center in Whitefish Bay.

He's charged with three counts of mailing threatening communications, one count of threatening to injure and destroy property by fire and an explosive, and three charges of obstruction and attempted obstruction of the free exercise of religious beliefs.

The community center says Grubbs was in the Winnebago County Jail at the time he mailed the letters.

Grubbs is currently jailed in Winnebago County for unrelated crimes, awaiting sentencing in December for threatening a judge. He was charged as a repeat offender in that case.
