FBI Makes Arrest in NY for Airline Bomb Threat

Tuesday, 13 Sep 2011 04:24 PM

CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. — Federal authorities say a woman who wanted to keep her mother and brother from flying to New York on a date near the Sept. 11 anniversary called an Arizona airport and falsely claimed a bomb was on board their flight.

The FBI says the Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y., woman called Tucson airport police twice to say she had overheard details of a bomb plot targeting a Southwest Airlines flight on Sept. 10.

The threat led authorities at the airport to remove luggage from Flight 2475 and conduct a search. No bomb was found.

The complaint against the woman was unsealed in a federal court on Long Island.

A message left for Southwest Airlines was not immediately returned.
