SALT LAKE CITY -- A 36-year-old Salt Lake City man accused of making bomb threats in the Trolley Square shopping center because he liked the rush has been charged with threatening terrorism.
Lonnie James Thompson was charged Thursday in 3rd District Court with two felony counts for 911 calls he's accused of making March 20.
Authorities say Thompson used a pay phone at a Smith's grocery store to tell dispatchers there were bombs everywhere in Trolley Square.
Court records show he made a second 911 call from a TRAX station, telling a dispatcher there was a bomb at the police station and the dispatcher had 30 seconds to comply.
Police say Thompson admitted to making the calls when he was found at the train station.
It's not clear whether he has an attorney.
