Guam - A construction worker who failed to comply with a local court order is now being charged in federal court for making three bomb threats to avoid having to appear before a judge during small claims proceedings.  Michael San Nicolas Santos is charged with maliciously conveying false information by phone. 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation was conducting a probe into three bomb threats that were made to the Dededo Mall in September and October. According to court documents, the FBI was able to track down surveillance footage showing Santos purchasing a SIM card for a pre-paid phone.  Santos was also scheduled to appear in court for a small claims case on each of the three days he allegedly made the bomb threats.

He confessed to making the threats to avoid the court hearings and took federal agents to the places where he discarded the phones he used to make the calls.
