A St. Louis man has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for threatening to blow up a church

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) – A man was sent to prison Tuesday for threatening to blow up a St. Louis synagogue in 2021.

Authorities say 30-year-old Cody Rush admitted to calling the FBI several times on Nov. 5, 2021 and threatening to blow up the Central Reform Convention in St. Louis. He said he would take action the next morning when people were inside and said he hated Jews.

Rush gave his location at the third bell, which was on the same street as the CRC. When the authorities called him back, he threatened again and told them: “I feel like suicide and murder. I just feel like killing Jews. “

Authorities found Rush and arrested him. He pleaded guilty in August to using a telephone and instrument of interstate commerce to make threats.

Rush was sentenced to 30 years in prison and ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation in prison and upon release.
