Cell Phone Helps Nab Bomb Threat Suspect

Deputies say a man who threatened to blow up the Dare County Justice Center Tuesday used his own cell phone to make the call.

Lawmen picked up 36 year-old Gary Abrahamian after a bomb threat was called in yesterday morning. Authorities evacuated the Justice Center where two district court sessions were scheduled for the day.

No bomb was found and court resumed.

Abrahamian is charged with making a false bomb report, a felony. His bond is set at $100,000.

Sheriff Rodney Midgett says deputies were able to track the call to Abrahamian's cell phone.

Abrahamian was scheduled to be in district court yesterday for two counts of secret peeping in the town of Southern Shores.
