Police have identified a suspect allegedly responsible for calling in a bomb threat last week to Antioch University Midwest in Yellow Springs. A man law enforcement believes committed the suspect is now in custody in Florida.
A week ago, Antioch University Midwest was evacuated and the building was searched, but no explosives were found. Police Chief Anthony Pettiford says an investigation has led law enforcement to detain Anthony Mark Thomas, who they believe made the call.
On Thursday evening, the Yellow Springs police department responded to a bomb threat made by an anonymous caller claiming that an explosive device had been placed at Antioch Midwest University, located at 900 Dayton Street.
The Office of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) has released a preliminary report regarding a July 30 standoff at a Yellow Springs residence that lasted nearly six hours.
