According to police, Timothy Zachariah Santiago, 22, of Lynchburg, was identified and arrested as the suspected caller.

Santiago is also suspected of calling in a bomb threat to courts in Lynchburg.

The threat led to both Charlotte County and Lynchburg Court Houses to be evacuated and searched.

No bomb was found, and according to police, Santiago made the call from Lynchburg City Hall, disguising his voice.

Last May, Santiago was charged with breaking and entering the Keysville library and the Keysville Town Hall. At that time Santiago was a resident of Lunenburg County

Santiago is currently being held at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail with no bond.
