SALT LAKE CITY — A man who made headlines a couple of years ago for stealing a car with two children inside is now in more trouble with the law.
Jeremy Adam Ohm, 30, who is listed as homeless, was charged Wednesday in 3rd District Court with making a terroristic threat, a second-degree felony.
On Jan. 6, while incarcerated at the Salt Lake County Jail, Ohm threatened to "blow this place up," according to charging documents.Comment on this story
Ohm, who has a lengthy criminal history, is no stranger to law enforcement. In 2013, Ohm got into a car that was left running while the driver went inside Little Caesars, 805 S. 900 West, to pick up food. What Ohm didn't realize was that two children, ages 2 and 3, were asleep in the back seat.
He hit another car as he drove off and initially did not pull over for police once he was spotted. He was eventually arrested and the children were not harmed.
Later that year, he pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted child kidnapping that were amended to third-degree felonies, according to court records, and was sentenced to up to five years in the Utah State Prison.
