COLLINS, MS (WDAM) - A Bassfield man has been charged with making a bomb threat against the Collins State Veterans Home last month.

Collins Police Chief Joey Ponder said Terry Magee was arrested Thursday night at a motel in Magee.

Magee is charged with false reporting of a crime and felony assault for allegedly calling in a bomb threat to the veterans home on Feb. 17, Ponder said.

A regional bomb squad searched the building and did not find a bomb.

Magee made his initial court appearance Friday morning and was denied bond by Judge John Sanford.

Magee is currently behind bars at the Collins City Jail. Ponder said the investigation is ongoing.
