A 20 year old New Caney man has been arrested for making a bomb threat and evading arrest.
Troy Tindall was arrested Wednesday night after he called the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office claiming he placed a bomb under a vehicle at the East Montgomery County Annex in New Caney and was about to detonate it.
A perimeter was established and the entire annex building was evacuated. The annex contains multiple law enforcement offices, whose officers are in and out throughout the night, including the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office; Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office – District 3; and the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol. Members of the county’s custodial staff are also on duty at the annex overnight and the East Montgomery County Jail facility is staffed by the Sheriff’s Office 24 hours a day and serves as a holding facility for inmates awaiting transfer to the main jail in Conroe.
Shortly after the perimeter was established and the evacuation was completed, Precinct 4 Deputies noticed a white male, who turned out to be Tindall, walking east on McCleskey Road, which is near the annex. When deputies approached Tindall, he ran. Once he was caught and arrested Tindall admitted making the bomb threat.
There was no bomb.
Troy Tindall is charged with False Alarm or Report of Emergency (state jail felony) and Evading Arrest / Detention (class B misdemeanor).
