Police from several jurisdictions conducted a search warrant and recovered numerous guns at a home in Crofton, Md., Thursday night after alleged threats referencing the “Joker” were made earlier in the week.
Sources told News4 that Neil Edwin Prescott made a phone call Monday to a co-worker and made a threat toward his employer, a subcontractor for Pitney Bowes, which was ready to fire him. Sources said he was upset about the prospect of losing his job and that he stated, “I’m gonna load my guns and blow everybody up,” according to a search warrant.
Sources said that a safety alert was issued Monday to police after the phone call. Prescott was fired from his job in Prince George’s County on an unrelated matter.
Sources tell News4’s Pat Collins that Prescott made threats — saying something to the effect of, “You don’ t know who the real Joker is; I am the real Joker.” When Pitney Bowes heard this alleged threat, they called authorities.
Authorities checked a police database and found that Prescott had 13 guns registered to his name. They became concerned, obtained a warrant and searched his home Thursday night. Anne Arundel County Police, Prince George’s County Police and the ATF were involved in the search.
Federal officials say several firearms were removed from the home, including three 9mm handguns, a .357 revolver and several other rifles and shotguns.
Prescott was groggy when police made contact, and was wearing a shirt that read, “Guns don’t kill people, I do.”
He has not been charged, and is being evaluated in a local medical facility.
Police will hold a news conference at approximately 1 p.m. to release more information.
Pitney Bowes issued the following statement:
“The suspect arrested is an employee of a subcontractor to Pitney Bowes. At Pitney Bowes we have clear security protocol and when we had concerns about this individual, we contacted authorities.” A spokeswoman later added, “He has not been on any Pitney Bowes property in more than four months.”
