Suspect Charged In Bomb Threat At NBA Offices

The Wall Street Journal has the 411: “A private security guard has been charged with making multiple, fake bomb threats earlier this week at a National Basketball Association office in New Jersey, federal prosecutors said Friday. Jose L. Quesada Jr., of Elizabeth, N.J., allegedly left multiple voice mails at an NBA Properties Inc. office in Secaucus, N.J., the U.S. Attorney’s office in Newark said in a statement Friday. Mr. Quesada, 19 years old, worked as a guard for a private firm that the NBA contracted with to provide security, prosecutors said. ‘A bomb threat is not a prank, it is a federal crime,’ said U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman in a statement. ‘There is nothing amusing about scaring people and wasting the valuable time and resources of those responsible for keeping us safe,’ Mr. Fishman said. Mr. Quesada has been charged with willfully making a false bomb threat. He faces up to five years in prison if convicted. Donald J. McCauley, Mr. Quesada’s lawyer, declined to comment Friday. Mr. Quesada allegedly left a threatening voice mail on Monday morning, five more voice mails in a 16-minute period on Tuesday night and a seventh voice mail on Wednesday afternoon, according to a criminal complaint. In one voice mail Tuesday night, Mr. Quesada allegedly said, ‘Leave the building. It’s gonna blow up. Leave the building. No where to go. It’s gonna go up. It’s gonna go Boom!’”

    “GET TO DA CHOPPA!”, he did not necessarily add.
