A St. Louis man is in custody and facing charges for making a terrorist threat.

The Post-Dispatch reports that Robert Metzinger posted the threats on his Twitter accounts. Police say the tweets implied that Metzinger was going to use a pressure cooker as an explosive device, similar to the devices used in the Boston Marathon bombings, in or around Busch Stadium. Metzinger posted bail and has been released.

His next court appearance is scheduled for late November.

The Westboro Baptist Church has announced plans to picket Games 3 and 4 of the World Series at Busch Stadium this weekend.  

The Kansas-based church has been banned in some states from protesting near the funerals of servicemen and women and is known for disrupting services of private citizens as well.

The church is calling for protesters to demonstrate against "the worthless strutting peacocks of these two baseball teams...glorifying themselves instead of God".  

St. Louis city police have said security downtown will be heightened for the Fall Classic.

Police Chief Sam Dotson met Monday with officials from the FBI, ATF, Homeland Security, and the Missouri Highway Patrol to discuss extra safety measures.

   The World Series will put St. Louis on a world stage.  That means major security measures will be in place around Busch Stadium.  

   St. Louis Police spent time Monday coordinating security plans with the FBI, ATF, Homeland Security, and the Missouri Highway Patrol.  St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson tells Fox 2 News they're trying to run through every possible security scenario in order to have a response plan in place.  "We’re doing everything we can to make sure no stone is left unturned, and the resources are there when we need them," he said.

   Dotson says securing a national event like the World Series is a complex process, no matter where it takes place.  "Whether we’re in St. Louis, Chicago or Louisville it doesn't matter," he said.  "We still have to go through the same planning process as if we’re Boston or New York or L.A."

   Dotson says many of the safeguards that were in place in 2006, like mechanical and K-9 bomb sniffers and surveillance cameras, will be used again.  There will also be extra police officers on the streets, both in uniform and plain clothes.

   Fans are advised to get to the ballpark early and expect long lines because of added security measures.
