LUDINGTON — A 21-year-old Ludington man was arrested Tuesday for making a bomb threat to a nursing home. Ludington Police Department was called to Tendercare of Ludington, 1000 E. Tinkham Ave. at 10:45 a.m. for a threats complaint related to a domestic dispute. According to LPD Chief Mark Barnett, the officer determined the suspect made threats to come to the facility and shoot the residents. “Based on that threat, Tendercare instituted a lock down procedure,” Barnett said.

“The suspect told one of the officers, via telephone, that he had placed a bomb at the location and was going to detonate it,” Barnett said. “A search was made for a device and no device was located.”

Barnett said officers were able to locate the suspect, took him into custody, and obtained an arrest warrant for false report or threat of bomb/harmful device. a 4-year-felony.  The suspect is expected to be arraigned by 79th District Court Judge Peter Wadel later this morning.

“It is important to note that Tendercare personnel reacted appropriately and per their policy,” Barnett said.
