A man with no permanent address is being accused of making bomb threats to Metro. Metro says its police department has arrested 38-year-old Raymond A. Gray Jr. He is accused of making bomb threat calls from five Metro stations in Washington since January.

A federal grand jury has charged him with five counts of willfully making a threat and/or maliciously conveying false information using fire and explosives.

Transit police believe Gray has also made multiple bomb threat calls from stations in Prince George's and Montgomery counties.
