Privacy in communication
Police arrested a 58-year-old man on five privacy in communication warrants.
On Jan. 22, police said a woman reported that Michael Clifford, her ex-boyfriend, had sent her several unwanted text messages on two separate occasions. Four days later, the woman and a man reported Clifford had sent them more text messages, threatening to harass them by sending “gifts they would hate,” police said.
Five privacy in communications arrest warrants, two misdemeanors and three felonies, were issued for the five separate series of text messages Clifford send to the woman and the man, police said.
On Tuesday, he was served with a restraining order and arrested on the warrants. Clifford was booked into the county jail that afternoon and released several hours later.
