NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say a parolee is accused of phoning in a bomb threat to a North Little Rock daycare.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1yRj2aT ) reports that police say that 27-year-old Bryan Jones called the Ascent Daycare on Wednesday and asked to speak with a female employee. Police say when a male employee answered the phone, Jones insinuated that he had placed an explosive device on one of the school vans.

The daycare was searched, but nothing was found. Investigators spoke to the threatened woman. Police say she believes Jones, her ex-boyfriend, was the one who made the call.

Jones is facing a second-degree terroristic threatening charge. He remains in Pulaski County jail with his bail set at $2,000. The county jail does not have an attorney listed for Jones.

Jones has previous convictions for threatening, kidnapping, and domestic battery.
