Woman accused of threatening government workers over tax refund

A St. Louis area woman is facing charges in Cole County after allegedly making physical threats toward government employees.

Missouri Capitol Police said Deborah Montague, 64, called the Missouri Department of Revenue and the Lieutenant Governor’s office about her tax return. Court documents said Montague called department of revenue workers three times on Feb. 14 asking about her $699 tax return. Montague reportedly told emplyees they would be shot, stabbed or blown up if she did not receive the tax return.

St. Louis area police reportedly contacted Montague a day after she made the threats. Brentwood Missouri police spoke with Montague and asked her not to make calls to state agencies unless she had actual business. After being contacted by police, she reportedly called Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe’s office four times. Montague identified herself as the FBI and was upset she was being contacted by officers.

Montague now faces a misdemeanor count of second-degree harassment. She is scheduled to make her first court appearance in April.
