SOQUEL, Calif. - A man is in jail for allegedly threatening his ex-wife and her new boyfriend and extorting money from them.
Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Deputies say a woman called them May first, accusing 48-year-old Steven Husong of the crimes, both of which are felonies.
Officers learned Husong had nine guns registered to him. That ex-wife told the Sheriff's Office some of those guns weren't registered to him, a tip they said was credible.
After staking him out, investigators arrested Husong in the area of Highway 17 in Soquel, without incident.
He was booked on two counts of making Terroristic Threats and Extortion and is being held on $100,000 bail.
