Greg Poole has been arrested for allegedly making threats to Page Field Airport clerks regarding noise complaints late Thursday.

According to a police report, Poole allegedly approached clerks at the airport to make a noise complaint.

After being told that a representative was unavailable to take the complaint, Poole claimed that an aircraft flew over his home in Arcadia and sprayed chemicals onto his property.

Poole claimed to have tracked the aircraft’s location to Page Field and asked the clerks if they knew about an FBI building that had blown up. Poole then allegedly stated, “If the plane does not stop flying over my house, you will be next.”

Poole left the scene in a white Dodge pickup truck, and law enforcement was called.

Poole is charged with making a false report of a bomb or weapon of mass destruction.
