TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A Florida man is accused of calling in a bomb threat to Florida’s state Capitol building, authorities said.
Clark was charged with making a false bomb threat to state-owned property, the newspaper reported. He was released on $10,000 bail at 11:30 a.m. Thursday and will appear before a Leon County judge on Friday.
“Out of an abundance of caution, the Capitol was closed while it was swept by law enforcement and explosive detecting K-9 units,” police stated in a news release. “No explosive devices were found, and nothing suspicious was identified.”
The specific threat Clark made has not yet been made public by police, the Democrat reported.
