Fairfield man arrested in courthouse bomb threat

State police have arrested a Fairfield man in connection with bomb threat at Bridgeport’s Golden Hill Court yesterday.

According to  Lt. Paul Vance, state police receive a 911 call reporting a bomb threat at the courthouse. Troopers interviewed the presiding judge and the head clerk, who said they had received the telephone threat.

After evacuating the courthouse, authorities searched the building and premises, but found nothing suspicious. The courthouse resumed normal business.

After further investigation, state police said they were able to determine that Robert Smith, 20, of Kenwood Ave. had made the bomb threat at about 9:55 a.m. Smith later admitted making the threat and was taken to Bridgeport’s Troop G barracks where he was processed and released on $10,000 bond.

Smith was charged with falsely reporting an incident, misuse of the 911 system, breach of peace and threatening. He is due to appear in court today.
