ATLANTA (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a metro Atlanta man has been sentenced in a bomb hoax and for threatening a federal agent.

Authorities said in a release Monday that 30-year-old Mikhaiov Pikulev of Lilburn was sentenced to seven months in prison.

Officials say Pikulev called the FBI’s Atlanta field office in October 2014 and told authorities two men asked him to build a bomb. Prosecutors say Pikulev told investigators he planned to deliver the bombs, record the transaction and turn over details to the FBI.

Authorities determined the man’s claims were unfounded.

Prosecutors say in December 2014, Pikulev called the FBI in Washington, D.C. to complain about the agents in Atlanta. Authorities say he got aggravated during the call and threatened to kill the agent who investigated the bomb hoax.
