Man indicted for false bomb threats at MSP Airport, Mall of America

Posted: Updated:

A 22-year-old man was indicted Tuesday for making false bomb threats at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and the Mall of America.

Dana William Ashey, formerly a resident of Maine, allegedly phoned in the airport threat at 2:37 a.m. on April 12 warning a bomb could detonate by 3:00 a.m. A second threat was reportedly phoned in at 2:42 a.m. the same day, warning a bomb had been placed in an MOA restroom.

At 2:17 p.m., an MOA switchboard operator reportedly received another bomb threat. All calls were traced to the cell phone Ashey was carrying inside the mall.

Ashey could serve a maximum of five years in federal prison on each of his two counts if convicted.
