FLAGSTAFF, AZ - A Flagstaff man is in custody for allegedly making a bomb threat at a city bookstore.
Flagstaff police say 55-year-old Dennis Andrew Grant claimed he had a bomb on his bicycle that was parked outside the store's front door Sunday afternoon.
Employees of a Barnes and Noble store called police after a customer allegedly threatened to detonate a bomb by using his cellphone.
Arriving officers say they located a man matching the suspect's description standing next to a bicycle and questioned him.
They say Grant claimed he was joking when he made the comment to a store employee.
A police bomb squad inspected Grant's bicycle and found no explosive device. He was arrested on suspicion of making a bomb threat. Police didn't immediately know whether Grant has a lawyer yet.
