A 19-year-old former security guard has pled guilty to calling in bomb threat to the NBA offices in New Jersey, according to the Bergen Record.
Jose L. Quesada Jr. admitted to U.S. District Judge Jose L. Linares that he made the threatening calls with his cellphone over a period of days beginning July 26. At the time, Quesada was employed as a security guard for NBA Properties Inc., at 100 Plaza Drive (in Secaucus).
He admitted leaving multiple voice mail messages saying that he was going to blow up the building and kill people.
He will be sentenced in March and could face up to five years in prison. There were never any bombs but the building was evacuated and searched. No motive for the calls has been made public. But as he called them in from his own cell phone, we are not talking about the sharpest knife in the drawer, here.
Go ahead and make all the “more missed bombs than the Pistons from three point range” jokes you want, it’s not really funny. Well, the Pistons part is, but not bomb threats.
