Indiana police have arrested the man they believe made online threats against law enforcement and caused the Evansville Police Department's SWAT team to raid the home of an 18-year-old and her grandmother.

Derrick Murray, 31, told the Courier & Press he is a suspect in the June 21 raid, when SWAT officers broke a storm door and a front window and set off two flashbang stun grenades at 616 E. Powell Ave.

Murray lives in the neighborhood and apparently used a Wi-Fi device to hack into his neighbor's "open IP" address and cause investigators to believe he was at the home.
