ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - A man accused of making false threats about bombs at the Union County courthouse complex earlier this year has been indicted on two counts of creating a false public alarm.

County prosecutors say 29-year-old David Daniels of Elizabeth faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say Daniels made two 911 calls on March 24 from separate pay phones in downtown Elizabeth.

Daniels allegedly told dispatchers during both calls that bombs were about to detonate within the courthouse complex. A thorough search did not reveal any explosives, and authorities have said the investigation revealed that Daniels was scheduled to appear in court that morning on an unrelated matter.

Daniels remains free on $75,000 bail. A telephone number for him could not be located Saturday.
