NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A West Virginia man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly calling in a hoax threat to blow up the Statue of Liberty.
Jason Paul Smith, 42, of Harts, West Virginia, was arrested in Lubbock, Texas, authorities said. According to federal prosecutors, he made a call to 911 on April 24 using an iPad and a service that helps hearing-impaired people make phone calls. In the call, Smith identified himself as an “ISI terrorist” named “Abdul Yasin” and threatened that “we” are preparing to “blow up” the Statue of Liberty, prosecutors said.
