KELLOGG, Idaho -- The Kellogg Police Department contacted an upset man this week about a threat he reportedly made to local utility company, Avista.

According to the Kellogg Police Department's Facebook page, Travis Smith threatened to steal one of Avista's cars if they continued to "rob" him.

KREM 2 spoke with Smith, who said he was trying to make a point to Avista. He said he told Avista that it was robbing him and then asked, "How would you like it if I robbed you?" He said Avista asked what he would steal and he replied he would take the cars.

Officers spoke with him and advised him of some of the consequences of his threats.

KPD said he assured officers the threats would never happen again.
