Man jailed after bomb threats to Reno school

Associated Press

RENO – A 60-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly making bomb threats to a Reno school.

The threats prompted officials to close Our Lady of the Snows School today as a precaution.

Sgt. Patrick Dreelan says Leland E. Dement Jr. was arrested for allegedly calling 911 more than 20 times Saturday and making threats against the school.

Dreelan said bomb-sniffing dogs sent to the Catholic school did not find anything.

Dement was being held in Washoe County Jail.

Parents of students were notified Saturday night of the situation.
