Santiago made these threats when he learned he was being discharged from the facility for behavioral issues. Santiago was processed and transported to the Seneca County Jail to await centralized arraignment. Troopers were assisted in the investigation by members of the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, the agency which oversees the facility.
