Law enforcement arrested 27 year old Cody Mathew Startt last Wednesday following nearly 400 bomb threats that occurred in Catawba, Burke and Caldwell Counties in the last 4-6 weeks.
Startt, 27, was arrested in Matoaka, W.Va., and charged with felony probation violations for convictions related to prior bomb threats.
Law enforcement determined all of the threats to be hoaxes. Calls were received in Catawba, Caldwell, and Burke Counties dating back to the month of May.
The FBI, N.C. State Bureau of Investigation, District Attorney’s Office, U.S. Marshals, West Virginia State Police, local police departments and Sheriff’s Offices contributed to the arrest.
Startt was returned to North Carolina late last week.
