Hamden man allegedly calls in bomb threat to Hartford building

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Hamden man is accused phoning in a bomb threat to a Hartford building.

Officials say 64-year-old Gary Leiderman called Access Health Care located in the Prudential Financial Building on Trumbull Street and repeatedly asked for the building’s address. They say when asked why he wanted to know the address and what he wanted to send, he said “a bomb” and hung up.

Police say they quickly determined there was no immediate threat or hazard after listening to a recording of the call.

The Bradley Avenue man is charged with first-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace. His bond was set at $75,000.
