TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a Tucson man they say is responsible for about 18 separate bomb threats in the past two weeks.

Tucson police say 42-year-old Octavio Acosta allegedly called in the threats to health centers, churches, schools and government buildings.

In some instances, Tucson police say the buildings were evacuated.

Police say a felony arrest warrant has been issued for Acosta for hoax, interference with an educational institution and false reporting.

Authorities say additional charges may be filed.

Police say Acosta could be armed and if anyone sees him, they should call 911 immediately.
