Colesburg Man who Phoned in School Bomb Threat Arrested

A 26-year-old eastern Iowa father has been accused of phoning in a bomb threat to an elementary school.

Authorities say Ean Weipert was arrested Tuesday at his home in Colesburg.  Bremer County court records say he’s charged with intimidation and with threat of terrorism.

A criminal complaint says Weipert called a staffer Tuesday at Durant Elementary School in Sumner and threatened to blow up the school.  Sumner Police Officer Trey Myers says an investigation showed the threat had to be taken seriously, although no weapon was found.
