Man Charged for Multiple Metro Bomb Threats

Five threats linked to suspect

WASHINGTON -- Apparently trying to make Metro even scarier, someone allegedly made multiple bomb threats to the transit system.

Metro police arrested Raymond A. Gray Jr., 38, on Tuesday. A federal grand jury charged him with five counts of willfully making a threat/maliciously conveying false information using fire and explosives.

 Gray is suspected of making calls from five Metro stations in D.C. between January and July.

"If someone makes threats of this nature, we take it seriously and track them down," said Metro Transit Police Chief Michael A. Taborn.

Investigators believe Gray made multiple threat calls from stations in D.C. and Prince George's and Montgomery counties in Maryland, according to police. He could face additional counts.

Metro police worked with the FBI, Homeland Security, the Secret Service, D.C. police and the U.S. Attorney's Office on the case.
