65-year-old man charged for making a bomb threat against AXA Towers

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A 65-year-old man was charged after making a bomb threat against AXATower One on Thursday.

According to Syracuse Police, George Glahn was arrested and charged with falsely reporting an incident in the first degree.

The Syracuse Police Department K-9 unit was assisted by the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit in checking for explosives. Officials say nothing suspicious was found in the building and it was reopened a short time later.

Following an investigation, officers say Glahn was located at the Motel 6 on Baptist Way in DeWitt.

Glahn was sent to the Onondaga County Justice Center.  CNYCentral.com
