MIDTOWN, Manhattan – An arrest was made in the bomb threat called into the national headquarters of the Anti-Defamation League on the East Side last month.
Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested in St. Louis, Missouri. He is accused of making at least eight of the threats against JCCs.
A threat was anonymously called into the ADL’s office at 605 Third Ave., on Feb 22. It was deemed not credible.
Investigators worked to determine the suspect’s role in recent threats against Jewish organizations across the country since January.
Federal officials took him into custody and he will appear in federal court in Lower Manhattan.
