Scottish Man Charged for Bomb Threats Directed to University of Pittsburgh

Man is member of Scottish National Liberation Army, but authorities don't know why he targeted college.


A man with ties to a Scottish terrorist group is accused of sending email bomb threats more than 50 times to the University of Pittsburgh this spring.

Scottish National Liberation Army member Adam Stuart Busby, 64, is accused of sending the email threats to the university, along with multiple bomb threats to western Pennsylvania courthouses, and specific threats of violence to U.S. attorney David Hickton, according to the FBI.

He is in custody in Dublin, Ireland, on charges relating to bomb threats and hoaxes throughout Great Britain, the FBI announced today.
