First arrest in connection with anti-Semitic threats on Jewish centers

Juan Thomson, 31, from St. Louis, was charged Friday with a series of bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers. The FBI and US Attorney’s Office in New York say Thomson appears to have made at least eight of the bomb threats to JCCs across the country during January and February, as part of a campaign to harass a former girlfriend. He also sent an email threat to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in New York City. The suspect was arrested in St Louis, Missouri. The centers have received over 100 threats this year and several Jewish cemeteries have been vandalized, including one in St. Louis.
