SLC men arrested for reporting fake weapon of mass destruction

SAINT LUCIE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Two St. Lucie County men are facing charges of reporting a fake weapon of mass destruction after standoff with police.

It started when officers tried to serve an arrest warrant on Michael Conley at the America's Best Value motel Monday afternoon.

Police say that's when Conley held a knife to his throat and threatened to unleash Ricin, a deadly bio-toxin.

Four hours later, Conley and another man, Michael Hughes, surrendered to police. Nobody was hurt, and detectives say there was no bio-toxin.
