A man is being sought by authorities after he reportedly threatened police officers by sending online posts after a major drug bust, Blytheville police said Wednesday. 

According to Blytheville Police Chief Ross Thompson, authorities are looking for Tyrone M. Dority on a warrant, alleging making a terroristic threat. Blytheville police and other agencies arrested 10 people in a drug investigation, called Operation Street Sweeper, on Jan. 13.
