The State : Bomb Threat Suspect Seized

A man FBI officials believe is responsible for making more than 100 bomb threats to airlines operating out of San Diego, San Francisco and Detroit, has been arrested in San Diego, authorities said. William Albert Risley, 50, was arrested in the downtown area by FBI Agent Samuel Stanton, after agents matched Risley’s voice to a series of threats that began in Detroit in 1985. In an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court, Stanton said Risley had in his possession “airline directories and quick reference airline schedules for airlines operating out of Lindbergh Field” in San Diego when he was arrested.
