Nov 13, 2012 (The Capital - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Anne Arundel County police said they charged a 24-year-old Laurel man with threatening to blow up a shed with what turned out to be a phony bomb.
Aaron David Wyatt, of Barbersville Road, was charged with one count each of manufacturing a phony destructive device and threatening arson. Wyatt was being held at Jennifer Road Detention Center in Parole with a bail review hearing scheduled for Tuesday morning, a jail representative said.
Police were called to Wyatt's home on Saturday after they received a report that he was using the Skype computer communication network to make threats that he was going to detonate a bomb to blow up a shed at his home, county police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said.
Police found Wyatt inside the shed using a computer and appearing to make a bomb. Police were able to remove him from the shed without coming into contact with the device, Mulcahy said.
An investigation revealed that the bomb-like device was fake, Mulcahy said.
Wyatt appears to have no prior criminal history in Maryland, according to online court records.
