A northern NSW man has been charged with allegedly sending threatening emails to a Victorian government official.
The Fixated Persons Investigation Unit launched an investigation late last year, after receiving reports a member of Victorian parliament had received some concerning emails, which were believed to have been sent from NSW.
Following inquiries, officers executed a search warrant at a home at Nimbin on Monday 7 December, where they seized a number of electronic devices, a computer, a tablet and a mobile phone for forensic examination.
