EL PASO, Texas (AP) - The 73-year-old Juarez man arrested for trying to enter the United States with an object designed to look like a bomb has been arrested again.
El Paso police say David Huebner was taken into custody Friday evening while trying to pick up his truck that was impounded after his Tuesday arrest.
Police say Huebner told the clerk he had a gun and a bomb before placing a bag on the counter and explaining how a bomb works.
Officers learned that Huebner did not have a weapon or explosive. He was charged with making a terroristic threat that impaired public service. He was jailed in El Paso County in lieu of $7,500 bond.
Huebner had been arrested Tuesday and jailed in lieu of $500 on a bomb hoax charge.
