SEGUIM, Wash. (TCD) — A 20-year-old man is in custody on suspicion of calling 911 and making a bomb threat because his mother wouldn’t allow him to do drugs.
According to a news release from the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, on Wednesday, Nov. 29, shortly after 5 p.m., Patrick Ahern called 911 and said he “created a bomb that was about to explode in 10 minutes.” He then asked law enforcement to respond to his home in the 100 block of Fairway Drive.
Deputies spoke with Ahern via phone as they were responding to his residence and learned there was no bomb. Further investigation revealed Ahern called 911 and made the threat because his mom allegedly “wouldn’t allow him to smoke marijuana.”
Ahern’s legal guardian, who was in the home at the time of the call, told deputies Ahern “never had a bomb.” During a search of the property, authorities confirmed there was no threat.
Deputies arrested Ahern and booked him into the Clallam County Jail on a charge of threats to bomb or injure property. He remains held on $10,000 bond.
