Anchorage man arrested for bomb threat against assemblyman

Posted: Wednesday, March 22, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- An Anchorage man was arrested Monday after he left a message on Assemblyman Kevin Meyer's voice mail saying nitrogen bombs were planted at Meyer's home because the man couldn't get his street plowed, Anchorage police said.

Dwight C. Jenkins, 67, left the message Sunday afternoon when Meyers was at church with his family, police said. After hearing the message a few hours later, Meyers took his family to a neighbor's house and called police, who didn't find a bomb.

The caller ID on Meyer's phone allowed police to track Jenkins to an Anchorage home.

Jenkins was charged with making a terroristic threat, a felony that carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.
