A 43-year-old Palm Coast man who apparently was upset about his lost dog was arrested early Wednesday morning after police said he posted a threat on Facebook to blow up his neighborhood and Buddy Taylor Middle School.
Benjamin Perrine was being held in the Flagler County Inmate Facility on a charge of a false report of planting a bomb. He was arrested by Flagler County sheriff's deputies around 12:13 a.m. at his home.
The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office sent a bomb sniffing dog to BTMS as a precautionary measure. No explosives were found. Perrine lives in the area of the middle school, so all precautions were taken, the Sheriff said.
