A man was arrested and charged in connection with the March 8 bomb threat at Brunswick's Lund-Crestliner boat factory in New York Mills, Minn.

Chad Steven Pikula, 37, of New York Mills, was arrested last Thursday and charged with two felony counts of making terroristic threats, the Fergus Falls Journal newspaper reported.

The factory shut down after the call, but no bomb was found.

Police found Pikula's phone number after filing a phone record subpoena. They called the number and persuaded Pikula, a temporary employee at the factory, to come to the police station.

Once there, Pikula admitted to phoning in the bomb threat and was arrested.
