WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man is charged with making bomb threats on a local courthouse and town hall.

State police say 21-year-old Jesse Spangenberg, of Watertown, sent an email to court officials at Waterbury Superior Court on Tuesday afternoon.

He said in the message that there was a bomb in the building and that the court system was corrupt.

Police eventually traced the message to Spangenberg, who they say confessed to writing the email. They say he also admitted making another phone threat against Watertown Town Hall. Officials say no bomb was located in either building.

Spangenberg has been in custody pending a Wednesday appearance in Waterbury Superior Court, where he faces felony threatening, breach of peace and other charges. It couldn’t be immediately determined if he has a lawyer.
