Arrest Made in Bomb Threat Case

Jan 18, 2013

On February 17, 2013 Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Police arrested Charles J. Billings, 20 of Akwesasne, and charged him with one count of Making a Terrorist Threat. The charge stemmed from an incident that occurred on January 13, 2013, wherein a male caller phoned the police station claiming he had placed a bomb in the Tribal Community building. A K-9 unit was dispatched to the Tribal Community Building and conducted a sweep of the building with negative results.

Billings was arraigned around 3:00 p.m. at Bombay Town Court, where Judge Smith ordered Billings be sent back to the Sunmount Developmental Disabilities Services Organization. No date has been set for Mr. Billings’ next Court appearance.
