WVa man accused of threatening luxury resort, retirement home

Charleston, West Virginia (AP) — A man in West Virginia was arrested for threatening a bomb that forced him to evacuate a luxury resort, state police said Friday.

Joseph Treller, 62, of Danville was arrested Thursday for three charges each of a terrorist threat and a false report of an emergency.

A person who called the Summers County 911 Center last Saturday reported that the bomb had been placed at White Sulfur Springs’ Greenbrier Resort and Charleston’s retirement home. Law enforcement agencies evacuated and searched both locations. State police said in a statement that no explosive device was found.

Toler was detained on a $ 75,000 bond at the South Central Regional Jail while the prosecution was pending. Prison records did not indicate whether Treller had a lawyer who could speak for him.
