Ga. man accused of threats against FBI offices

ATLANTA (AP) - A Georgia man is accused of threatening to blow up FBI buildings nationwide.

Gregory Jones, special agent in charge of the FBI in Atlanta, said Friday 23-year-old Michael Robert DeJong of Buford was arrested Wednesday morning, one week after the threat was made on the FBI.gov Web site. DeJong is in custody pending a probable cause
and bond hearing on Tuesday.

DeJong was arrested at a friend's home in Auburn, Ga., after agents traced the threat to a publicly available computer in the Auburn library. Examining the computer contents, agents were led to DeJong, who they learned had been convicted of threats against President Bush in 2007.

The threat did not specify which FBI offices would be targeted other than that the bomber would start with Atlanta.
