A Cabrini College student who allegedly placed a bomb threat to his dorm using his personal cell phone should have rethought his call, maybe.
Daniel Bowden, 18, a freshman at the college in Radnor, has been charged with a felony count of terroristic threats and several other crimes, including harassment and false alarms to agencies of public safety, for his actions on St. Patrick's Day, also known as last Sunday.
According to Radnor Det. T.J. Schreiber, Bowden used his cell phone to call a wall phone at Woodcrest Hall, a co-ed dorm where girls and boys live on alternate floors. Bowden lives in the dorm, but was not there when he placed the call to one of the phones on a girls' floor around 9:45 p.m., police said.
Bowden changed his voice during the call, though he did it the old fashioned-way and not with Auto-Tune or any other fancy voice modifiers, police said. During the call, he told the two girls who answered the phone that there was a "bomb in the building," police said.
