CORNWALL – A man who threatened to kill Canada Post employees in Cornwall roughly a year ago has been given a six month house arrest sentence.

Justin Roddy, 49, of Cornwall was found guilty last month on a charge of uttering death threats and given a conditional sentence, court records show.

The main post office on Second Street West in Cornwall and the depot on Boundary Road were closed on April 3, 2019 after Canada Post said it received a phone call from Roddy with a “credible threat” to kill workers.

In addition to the six month sentence, Roddy will be on probation for two years and is subject to a 10 year weapons ban.

He also had to submit a DNA sample to the court.
