A Central New York man was arrested for making a bomb threat at Logan Airport,
according to a report from WBZ-TV
, the CBS affiliate in Boston.
WBZ reports 30-year-old Jeremy S. Sawyer, a member of the U.S. Air Force, â??is charged with making a bomb threat after he told a Logan Airport employee he had a pressure cooker in his backpack.â??
WBZ reports Sawyer is orignally from Cicero. His LinkedIn profile says he is a Database/Information Systems Manager with the Air Force and graduated from Liverpool High School in 2001.
Massachusetts State Police told WBZ that Sawyer â??became irate when an airport information booth employee told him the USO Lounge was closed.â??
During the confrontation, Sawyer allegedly said "What am I suppose to do with this pressure cooker?" as he pointed to his backpack.
Three people were killed and hundreds of others were wounded when bombs built inside pressure cookers were set off at the Boston Marathon on April 15.
WBZ reports Sawyer posted $2,500 bail and a judge released him on his own recognizance.
