Lincoln County Sheriff’s detectives contacted AT&T which owns the tower over which the call was transmitted. AT&T was able to provide detectives with an identifying number for the device that made the call. They were able to determine the device used last had service with T-Mobile. T-Mobile then provided officers with the last paying customer to use the device. That person was identified as the Gastonia man. Detective Justin Link then went to Crate and Barrel and their records confirmed that the man was an employee and the number provided by T-Mobile was the same number as the one in his employee file.
He was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $2,000 secured bond.
Detectives are investigating two previous bomb threat calls that were made to Crate and Barrel in September of 2018 and January of 2019.
The Lincoln Herald has not included the name of the man in our article as a matter of policy. Many of those who make bomb threats or other threats of violence appear to do so in a quest for notoriety. We refuse to give them the publicity they seek; but we are pleased when those who make such threats and waste the time of law enforcement and reduce productivity by their actions are arrested for their crime.
