Bloomington Man Arrested In Connection With Bomb Threats

Last updated on Thursday, December 15, 2011

(BEDFORD) - A Bloomington Man was arrested early this morning in connection with the recent bomb threats made at Bedford area businesses.

43 year old Larry Frye was arrested on charges of intimidation and false informing.

Frye was spotted at Wal-Mart after the sixth bomb threat in three days in Lawrence County was being investigated; it was Wal-Mart's second bomb threat in the three day span.

Frye agreed to go to the police station where he admitted he was responsible for the hand written notes left at Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Circle K.

Police believe the two bomb threats made at Bedford North Lawrence High School are not connected with the ones made by Frye.

Bedford Police Chief Dennis Parsley says he expects Frye to be charged with additional crimes.

All of the notes left by Frye used the name of another person; Frye was allegedly leaving the notes because of bitterness regarding a past relationship.
