A man was arrested by Draper police after reportedly threatening to blow up a Harmons grocery store.

Officers were dispatched on Saturday with information relating to a man who threatened an employee of Harmons that he would “blow up the property.”

32-year-old Justin Dredge, the suspect behind the threat, was reportedly agitated when officers arrived on scene and was non-compliant, refusing to put his hands behind his back.

The employee told police that Dredge had asked her for a cigarette and after she said no, Dredge said he was a white supremacist and would start blowing things up that night, starting with the Harmons.

Dredge was arrested for disorderly conduct, interfering with an officer, and threat of terrorism with a weapon/intimidation.
