Police: NY Man Made Threat at Boston Airport

Logan

BOSTON (AP) — A New York state man has been charged with making a threat at Boston’s Logan Airport after allegedly remarking that he had a pressure cooker in his backpack.

Jeremy Sawyer of Cicero, N.Y., pleaded not guilty Wednesday to making a bomb or hijack threat. He was released on his own recognizance and ordered to stay away from Logan. His attorney declined to comment Thursday.

A state police report said Sawyer, an enlisted Air Force member, went to a Logan information booth Tuesday morning to ask about a USO lounge. He allegedly became angry when told it wasn’t open.

Police said he referred to the Boston Marathon bombings, pointed to his backpack and asked “what am I supposed to do with this pressure cooker?”

He was arrested about half an hour later. No pressure cooker was found.
