Bomb threat nets prison

A man accused of phoning in a bomb threat to the courts in Heredia got six months in prison Monday at the Tribunal de Flagrancia de Heredia.

The man has the last names of Iglesias Villalobos, and the Poder Judicial noted he was arrested Thursday just 100 meters from his home in San Pablo de Heredia. Agents quickly tracked the call to a cell telephone used by the suspect.

The man submitted to an abbreviated judicial process in the flagrancia tribunal which is designed to handle cases where suspects are caught red-handed or nearly so.
