Parkersburg man arrested after bomb threats at two medical offices

By  | 

PARKERSBURG, WV (WTAP) - A Parkersburg man is in custody after police say he called in bomb threats to two Wood County medical offices on Thursday morning.

Parkersburg Police say at 10:26 A.M. Thursday, the Wood County 911 Center received a call from an employee of Amedisys Home Health, at 2200 Grand Central Avenue in Vienna, stating a man had threatened to bring a bomb into the building.

As a precaution, the building was evacuated as Vienna Police and Vienna Fire Department searched the building.

No bomb was found.

Shortly after that threat, Parkersburg Police responded to a similar bomb threat made by the same man at a Camden Clark medical office on Rosemar Circle, near the intersection of Emerson Avenue and Rosemar Road, in Parkersburg.

No bomb was found there, either.

Parkersburg Police arrested the suspect, Jason Hall, age 45, at his home at 1346 40th Street in Parkersburg.

Investigators say Hall made the bomb threats because he was angry about the care given to one of his relatives who is being treated at Amedisys.

Hall is expected to be arraigned this week on charges of making terroristic threats.
