Elyria police think new bomb threats linked

ELYRIA — Police believe three bomb threats in two days may be connected to the same suspect.

On Saturday, the Best Buy at Midway Mall received the first threat, according to Elyria police. The next threat came Sunday when someone called in a bomb threat about 1 p.m. to Target in the Midway Mall. Shortly after the Target threat, someone called in another bomb threat to the Best Buy at Midway Mall.

Police investigated the threats, which they believe were all called in by the same suspect. They have found a possible suspect but had not charged the man or taken him into custody Sunday evening.
