Police charged a man with disorderly conduct after a Kane County employee found a note threatening to blow up the clerk’s office.

At 2:45 p.m. Monday, a clerk’s office employee was cleaning a table in a public area of the building at 540 S. Randall Rd. in St. Charles when she found the note, according to the Kane County sheriff’s office.
