OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A 41-year-old Kansas City man has pleaded guilty to making a threatening phone call to an Overland Park synagogue.

Brian Wachter pleaded guilty Thursday to making a criminal threat, which is a felony.

He admitted in his plea that he called in the threat last May to Congregation Beth Shalom.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/2myyyJP ) prosecutors didn’t say what the threat involved but court documents describe it as a “threat to commit violence.”

Sentencing is scheduled for May 9.
