A Montgomery man has been arrested and charged with making terrorist threats after making two threats to blow up a gas station and the Interstate 65 bridge at West Fairview Avenue.

Lamar Flynn, 49, was arrested Wednesday by Montgomery Fire/Rescue and was taken to Montgomery County Detention Facility on a combined $30,000 bond, according to MFR Sgt. OJ Whiting.

Flynn’s first bomb threat occurred on June 19. According to the affidavit for Flynn’s arrest, Flynn called 911 at approximately 6:45 a.m. and said he put a bomb in the cooler of a Petro Mart gas station at the 2200 block of West Fairview Avenue. Flynn said the bomb would go off in one hour and the gas station was evacuated as a result, according to the affidavit.

Eight days later, Flynn called in another threat, this time saying he would blow up the I-65 northbound bridge at Fairview Avenue. The affidavit states Flynn “advised he was a suicide bomber and he would blow the police and himself up.”

No devices were found either time.

The Department of Communications traced Flynn’s call to an empty lot around the corner from the gas station at 1929 Myles Street. Flynn lives next door to the empty lot, and his attempt to mask his voice on the phone call was unsuccessful, the affidavit reported.
