A 55-year-old man is in custody after making bomb threats.

Officers from the Idaho Falls Police department have investigated the threats in the area on Fremont Avenue between the Idaho National Laboratory's Willow Creek Campus and University Boulevard.

The bomb threat called in this morning caused the Regional Bomb Squad to investigate a residential property and vehicles in the area.

No devices were located and the Idaho Falls prosecutor's office is now determining if and what charges may be filed. The area has been reopened.
