A man has been arrested for allegedly making bomb threats at three locations in Newton.

According to Newton police Lt.

Authorities say the suspect provided a timeline for when the bombs would detonate.

Police say each location was evacuated. Hall said a search was conducted once the time frame had elapsed. No explosive devices were found.
