GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – Gloversville City Hall has reopened after being closed Friday morning as police investigated a suspicious circumstance.
As Polk was interviewed by detectives, police say he indicated that he was very dissatisfied with society and government.
“He said that it was basically because he was sick of society,” Det. Sgt. Mike Tory said. “He’s done with the games. He’s sick of the streets.”
When police looked into his past, they say they found some alarming factors.
“It’s more the affiliation with local street gangs from the Baltimore area who have targeted law enforcement in the past down there, and unfortunately, this incident was very similar to an incident that took place in Baltimore,” Gloversville Police Chief Donald Vandeusen said.
Although Polk made no threats to anyone, police took precautions before the search of his vehicle.
