VALLEY STREAM -

A Valley Stream man is under arrest and accused of harassing a police department in Florida and threatening to kill a sergeant.

Robert Shemanski called the West Palm Beach Police Department for about two years and harassed them, according to police.

Detectives say the 38-year-old sent a Facebook message Tuesday to a Florida news station saying he was going to kill a West Palm Beach police sergeant.

Shemanski was set to be arraigned Thursday on harassment charges.
