19-Year Old Jewish Man Arrested In Connection to Bomb Threats Against JCC

March 23, 2017

 

 

A 19-year old man was arrested in connection with the many recent bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers (JCC). The young man is himself a Jewish person — a dual American-Israeli citizen. His name has not been released. 

 

He was arrested in Israel after a joint FBI/Israeli police investigation. They believe many of the calls were from other countries — not from the U.S. The caller used technology to change the sound of his voice to a woman’s. 

 

It appears this person was responsible for most of the threats — over 100 of them in 33 different states and some international threats. 

 

A JCC leader, Doron Krakow, said he was happy a suspect was arrested, but was troubled by the fact that the person was Jewish.

 

It is not clear what the motive/reasons why this person made those threats. 

 

Earlier this month a person was arrested for making bomb threats — a fired reporter, Juan Thompson — made the threats to scare a woman who Juan used to be in a relationship with. 

 

Juan was responsible for around 8 of the calls, while the majority of the calls seems to be the young man who was just arrested. We’ll see what more we can learn from the investigation.
