Associated Press - July 23, 2015 6:52 am

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

According to Newton police Lt. Bryan Hall, Harvey County dispatchers received a call around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday from a man who claimed he had planted bombs at a grocery store, the public library and the community corrections office. 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.
