Ohio Man arrested for bomb threats to Nebraska Courthouses

An Ohio man was arrested last week in connection with the bomb threats that were called into 9 Nebraska County Courthouses, including Gage, Jefferson, and Saline counties, last November.  The FBI says Lonny L. Bristow was arrested and is believed to have called in bomb threats not only in Nebraska, but also in Washington, Oregon, Tennessee, and Mississippi from November thru December 2012.  The investigation found that several pre paid phone cards were purchased and used to make the calls to the various courthouses in those five states.  Bristow was taken into custody last Wednesday without incident.
