BRYAN, Texas (AP) — A man has been charged in a false bomb threat at Texas A&M and a female friend accused in a similar hoax at another university is being investigated in both cases.
A&M police Lt. Allan Baron said Tuesday that Dereon Kelly and Brittany Henderson , both of Bryan, are in a relationship. He declined to elaborate.
Kelly and Henderson are jailed on charges of making a terroristic threat. Bond is $150,000 each.
Police allege Kelly on Oct. 19 emailed a threat to A&M in College Station. Kelly was arrested hours later on unrelated fraud charges. He was charged Monday with the hoax.
Henderson was arrested last week over the Oct. 18 threat at Texas State University in San Marcos. Baron says she's a person of interest in the A&M case.
