A man has been arrested and charged after a member of Victorian parliament was allegedly sent death threats.

Specialist police from the Fixated Persons Unit opened a major investigation into the alleged threats, which were believed to have been sent via email from NSW late last year.

Officers raided a home in Nimbin, in the state’s north, last month and seized several electronic devices, including a computer, a tablet and a mobile phone.

A 53-year-old man was arrested at the home and taken to Lismore Police Station.

He was charged with using a carriage service to threaten to kill and two counts of using a carriage service to menace, harass or offend.

He was granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Lismore Local Court on Monday.
