MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (WPRI) ─ A Middletown man was arrested Tuesday after police were able to connect him to bomb threats made toward a grocery store back in November.
Jacob Tomkus, 19, is accused of calling the threats into the Stop & Shop on West Main Road on two consecutive days.
Police said the store was evacuated on both occasions, leaving many customers and employees unnerved.
Tomkus was arraigned Tuesday on two counts of bomb threats and similar false reports. His bail was set at $20,000 with surety.
