Facebook death threats land 2 Pinellas County, Florida, women in jail

INDIAN SHORES, Fla. - Two women in Pinellas County face felony charges after being accused of making death threats on Facebook.

Sabrina Perrone, 22, and Valerie Delorenzo, 19, of Seminole, Fla., were arrested Monday. According to arrest affidavits, the two posted threats to Emily Sipos' Facebook wall.

"They need to grow up and act their age," Sipos said.

Sipos says it stems from an ongoing dispute.

According to arrest affidavits, Perrone threatened Sipos, telling her in one post to come outside and that she would drag her out of her house with her mom and dad there.

Delorenzo reportedly told police she used Perrone's account to post threatening messages because Sipos had blocked her.

According to the affidavit, Delorenzo posted a threat saying, "I'll put a bullet in your (expletive) head Emily it's Valerie..." and attached pictures of guns.
    
The report says at least some of the posts were made while they drove to the house.

Sipos says they showed up Monday afternoon.

"They were across the street. I told them if they show up at my house while I'm with my child and bring this drama to my parents' house, this is my parents' house, I'm going to call the police," Sipos said.

She did call the police who pulled them over and arrested them.

"It's not right at all. They need to just mind their own business. Worry about their lives," Sipos said.

Perrone posted bond.

WFTS-TV in Tampa visited both women's houses; someone answered the door at Delorenzo's but did not want to talk.
