IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A man accused of calling in a bomb threat to an Iowa City high school and robbing a bank in January is scheduled for trial June 21.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen (https://icp-c.com/22oEA2j ) reports that 30-year-old Clifton R. Brinkmeyer pleaded not guilty to charges of terrorism and second-degree robbery March 9.

Emergency dispatchers received a call Jan. 19 about an explosive at West High School. The building was evacuated until law enforcement was able to determine there wasn’t a threat.

A bank about five miles east of the high school was robbed 20 minutes after the call. Authorities say Brinkmeyer was arrested after matching witness descriptions.

Detectives found a phone tied to the call in Brinkmeyer’s car.

He was released from jail after posting bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.
