BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Authorities in Erie County have arrested a man accused of making bomb threats against a public safety campus.

Investigators say 26-year-old Sean Vungaro of Buffalo called 911 dispatchers in early February and warned the dispatcher to leave because the Elm Street building was going to explode.

Nothing was discovered after a nearly two-hour search, and the threat was deemed not credible.

Sheriff's Deputies arrested Vungaro on March 1 and charged him with a felony count of making a terroristic threat.
