Buster Hernandez also known as Brian Kil, 26, was arrested last Thursday. He is accused of using social media to threaten teenage girls and make bomb threats.

Hernandez is now in police custody after authorities were able to track him down. Officials say it started two years ago in Plainfield, Indiana. He is accused of allegedly making cyber threats to girls and producing child pornography. Officials say he also threatened to blow up two Indiana high schools and a mall.

"His stated goal through social media which we received in his words-- he wanted to be the worst cyberterrorist that ever lived. The evidence showed that he was well on his way to achieving his goal. He victimized individuals in 10 federal districts," said Josh Minkler, U.S. Attorney.

Prosecutors say Hernandez faces 15 to 30 years in prison if convicted.
