NEW YORK (AP) -- Nassau County police say Rajiv Pandey called a TV news station on Friday evening and threatened to place a bomb at a company facility. Investigators searched more than 30 locations but did not find a bomb. They say the call was made from Pandey's cell phone.
Police say the 33-year-old was frustrated because his power was
out. Tens of thousands have been without electricity on Long Island
since Tropical Storm Irene hit.
The Central Islip resident was charged with falsely reporting an
incident and scheduled to be arraigned Saturday in Hempstead.
Attorney information was not immediately available.
