KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City, Kansas, man has been sentenced to more than a year in federal prison for forcing the evacuation of a terminal at Kansas City International Airport when he lied about having a bomb in his truck.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://j.mp/2axg4Ig ) that 35-year-old David James Cain was sentenced Tuesday to one year and six months in federal prison. He pleaded guilty earlier this year to a charge stemming from the August 2014 incident at the airport’s Terminal B.

Prosecutors say Cain left his truck parked in front of the terminal for more than an hour. After airport authorities announced they’d tow the truck if it wasn’t moved, Cain told airline employees a bomb was in the vehicle.

The terminal was evacuated until law enforcement found no explosives.
