'Threats' made to Grant over greyhound ban

AAP logoAAP 15/08/2016

Two men have allegedly threatened to kill the NSW Deputy Premier Troy Grant over the state government's decision to ban greyhound racing.

Police say the pair made several threatening phone calls to Mr Grant's electoral office in Dubbo in the past week.

It's believed the men, aged 22 and 31, are members of the greyhound industry.

They were arrested at Molong on Saturday and taken to Orange Police Station where detectives travelled from Dubbo to charge them, a NSW Police spokesman said.

The 22-year-old was charged with using carriage services to threaten to kill, and use carriage service to menace, harass, offend, while the 31-year-old was charged with the latter offence.

Both men were granted strict conditional bail to appear at Orange Local Court on September 5.

Mr Grant has declined to comment.
