An inmate at the Bolivar County Correctional Facility in Cleveland is being accused of making threatening phone calls to residents of an Adams County neighborhood.
The Adams County Sheriff's Office received an anonymous letter pleading for help saying that Cornelius Baldwin, incarcerated since September 2012, reportedly made several threatening phone calls to residents of the LaGrange subdivision.
Baldwin, of Adams County, was convicted of cruelty to animals and is serving a sentence of three years in jail. The letter received by ACSO stated that residents in the LaGrange subdivision have received several possibly threatening phone calls allegedly from a smuggled cell phone given to Baldwin.
Sheriff Mayfield addressed the issue on the ACSO website writing, "[we] would like to assure the residents of La Grange that we received the letter and that we have advised the prison in this matter."
Sheriff Mayfield did not comment on whether investigators are looking into a person who may have brought a cell phone into the correctional facility.
