A Covington man, previously charged with threatening to destroy interstate bridges and Boone County businesses, was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury in Covington.
Bruce K. Calsbeck, 33, was indicted for threatening to damage property with fire or explosives, committing larceny in a building housing a bank insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., and conveying false and misleading information.
According to an affidavit made in August, Calsbeck placed a 911 call from a telephone inside of Florence Mall and told the operator that bridges on interstates 275 and 75/71, the Boone County Courthouse and businesses would be destroyed by explosives.
The affidavit also alleged that Calsbeck stole a U.S. Bank deposit bag containing $2,550 from a woman at Remke's Market about an hour after making the 911 call. If convicted, Calsbeck could get up to 35 years in prison.
