Arrest in Jewish Center Bomb Hoax

Tulsa, OK – Tulsa Police have arrested 22-year-old Christopher Jacob Stefanelli in connection with this week's bomb hoax at the Schuesterman Jewish Community Center. Tulsa Police Officer Leland Ashley says it was brought on by a domestic dispute between Stfanelli and his partner.

A phone call was made to the center and after a ticking device was found in a trash can, the center was evacuated in 100+ degree temperatures. It turns out the device was a clock. No one was injured. Police say it was not a hate crime.
