Conn. man charged in Yale hoax threat
Police in New Haven, Connecticut have charged a man with making a hoax call last November in which he falsely claimed an armed man was on his way to shoot up Yale University. It prompted a six-hour campus lockdown and search.
Police say Jeffery Jones of Westbrook has been on their radar for a while. They say he's under investigation for similar calls made to Hillhouse High School in New Haven in December of last year and to Branford Police about an armed bank robbery that never occurred.
