(Newser) – The Secret Service is hunting a man who took all of his money out of a Utah bank and told the teller he was on a "mission to kill" the president, the Salt Lake Tribune. Daniel James Murray has been charged with making threats against the president.  Authorities say he has at least eight registered firearms.

"I have traveled thousands of miles to be here and know things that are going to happen. The banking system will fail and people will die. There will be chaos in the world," Murray told the teller on the first of two trips in which he took out a total of $85,000. "We are on a mission to kill the president of the United States."
