Beckley, Raleigh County , West Virginia
A Beckley man is in jail after police said he threatened to blow up a Raleigh County business.
Travis Lee Persinger, 26, is being charged with three counts of making false bomb threats.
Beckley police responded to five bomb threats at a Walmart on Eisenhower Drive earlier this month.
Persinger actually worked at the store and authorities said he told them he only made the threats because he was bored.
