A New York City man was arrested for allegedly calling up a Nassau County police precinct, claiming to be a terrorist and threatening to kill everyone in the station house last week, authorities said.
John Hardy was arrested and charged Saturday with making a terroristic threat and harassment.
Police said the 52-year-old Staten Island man called the Third Precinct in Williston Park and said he would place a bomb in the building shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Moments later, he called 911 and said that he left a bag containing dynamite inside the doorway of the Third Precinct, according to Third Squad detectives.
The building was searched and the threat was found to be a false alarm.
Detectives and Bureau of Special Operations officers apprehended Hardy over the weekend.
Judge Rhonda Fischer ordered Hardy held without bail Sunday. He is due back on court Wednesday.
