Man pleads guilty to leaving bomb threat notes around city


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – A northeast Florida man faces up to five years in prison for leaving bomb threat notes in public places earlier this year.

A U.S. Attorney’s Office news release said Thursday that 28-year-old David Anthony Moody has pleaded guilty to hoax bomb threats.

Court documents say Moody wrote six bomb threat notes and left them at various public places in Fernandina Beach between Jan. 30 and Feb. 2. Each note stated that a bomb was going to explode, killing a multitude of people. One of the notes was signed “The F.B. BOMBER!”

Authorities eventually focused on Moody, who worked in the area, after following multiple leads. No explosives were ever found.
