A West Virginia man is arrested for making a bomb threat against University of Virginia medical facilities.
According to police, Thomas Ray Morgan of Brenton, W.Va. was taken into custody without incident around 9 a.m. Thursday. He is charged with one count of making a bomb threat.
On Wednesday, a phoned-in threat caused the evacuation of a portion of the West Complex at UVa. Health System and Fontaine Research Park.
The threat sent more than 300 patients and staff out into the cold while they waited for police and bomb sniffing dogs to search facilities on Ray C Hunt Drive.
Morgan is currently being held at the Southern Regional Jail in Beaver, West Virginia.
