NEW YORK, NY (Metro News) - A Missouri man is in custody for making bomb threats against Jewish centers across the U.S. The U.S. Attorney's office in New York identifies the suspect as 31-year-old Juan Thompson of St. Louis.
The FBI says he made the threats to the Jewish Community Centers in a woman's name after she broke off their romantic relationship. Thompson is accused of phoning in at least eight threats over the past two months. He was arrested in St. Louis and will be arraigned in New York.
The Anti-Defamation League says that federal and New York law enforcement told them of an arrest made in connection with bomb threats phoned in to the ADL's national headquarters in New York City last month.
