ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Sheriff’s officials in metro Atlanta say a man accused of calling in a bomb threat to a county courthouse has been arrested.
Authorities say Tommie Boleman of Acworth is accused of calling in a threat to the Cobb County Courthouse Tuesday morning during an auction for foreclosed homes.
Authorities say Boleman called from a payphone and said a bomb had been buried outside the courthouse.
Deputy Chief Milton Beck says a bomb-sniffing dog searched the area around the courthouse and no explosives were found.
It’s unclear if Wilson has an attorney. He’s being held without bond in the Cobb County jail on five charges.
On May 7, a Marietta restaurateur allegedly called in a similar threat during a foreclosure auction.
