A 30-year-old Queens man was arrested Friday after he allegedly threatened to blow up police precincts in New York City and Nassau County, authorities said.

Richard Bolton was charged with making a terroristic threat and will be arranged Saturday at First District Court in Hempstead.

The Queens Village man, according to Nassau police, allegedly called the Nassau County Communications 911 desk at 3:20 a.m. and said “he was strapped with a bomb” near 165th street in Jamaica, Queens and was going to “blow up a New York City Police Precinct and then come to Nassau County and also blow up more precincts.”

He also stated he was upset because he had been written summonses in Queens, police said.

Bolton was located in Queens and arrested.
