HAHNVILLE- One man is behind bars Wednesday after investigators say he posted on social media threatening police officers.

According to a WWLTV report, St. Charles Parish Sherrif's Office charged Victor Pablo with terrorizing and threatening a public official. 

Deputies say Pablo posted a threat on social media, writing, "In uh lil while cops in St. Charles are goin to be next. I hope they kill every last 1 of them dirty b*tchez."

The threat was posted online one day after three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers were killed in an ambush on Airline Highway.

"In light of the recent events in Dallas and Baton Rouge, this threat was considered to be serious and dangerous," St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office said. 

Authorities searched Pablo's home and found several weapons, according to WWLTV.

"Making threats in this volatile environment incites danger for law enforcement and the public," Sheriff Champagne said.

Pablo is being held on $25,000 bond.
