The FBI has arrested a 19-year-old United States citizen for making bomb threats directed towards McAllen Miller International Airport.
According to an FBI report Juan Rodrigo Rodriguez made at least four bomb threats between August 22, 2007 and September 10, 2007.
The threats were reportedly sent via web message by accessing McAllen Miller Airport’s website. Federal agents say all threats were directed at the facility and at a commercial aircraft.
Ralph Diaz, Special Agent in Charge of the San Antonio Division of Federal Bureau of Investigations, said “under the current security environment, these types of fabricated threats will not be tolerated by law enforcement and will be aggressively investigated”.
McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez also assisted in this investigation. He said “this joint investigative effort is an excellent example of the seriousness given to these types of threats towards our community”.
