LSU Police Arrest Suspect in Bomb Threat
It took almost no time for authorities to nab a suspect in Monday's LSU bomb threat that lead to an evacuation of the LSU campus. Here is a picture of the suspect, William "Boobie" Bouvay Jr.
Here's the thing boys and girls; law enforcement folks now have a million and two ways to catch you if you decide that you just must break the law. For example, the case of the LSU bomb threat. the suspect may not be guilty, but it certainly didn't take law enforcement long to do their case study.
Here's how things went down:
“LSU Police Chief Lawrence Rabalais, said that the investigation and subsequent arrest was a joint operation with Louisiana State Police, East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office, East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office, Baton Rouge City Police, FBI, ATF and the Department of Homeland Security.
On Sept. 17 at 10:32 a.m., East Baton Rouge Parish 911 Center received a call from an unknown caller who claimed that multiple bombs had been planted and they would detonate in two hours. The call lead to a full evacuation of the campus.
LSU Police Investigators along with assistance from other Law Enforcement agencies were able to determine that the 911 call had been made from a deactivated cell phone that could only make emergency calls. Investigators were able to determine a GPS location from which the call was made, and bada-bing-bada boom, it lead to an arrest. During questioning, Bouvay admitted to having called 911 and making the bomb threat and disclosed the location of the phone that was used to make the call.
The suspect will be spending plenty of time in court facing multiple charges. As our "snarky" news director Scott Lewis observed on his Friday morning news cast, "It looks like Boobie will be exposed for quite some time"
