Arrest made after threats made on elder care facility in Harrison County

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. — A Fairmont resident has been charged with threats of terrorist acts following two phone calls to a Bridgeport nursing facility on Monday.

Police said Matthew Reynolds, 38, initially called the Bridgeport Healthcare Center twice early Monday morning. During the first call, Reynolds told the employee he was going to come to the facility and shoot the workers. During the second call, Reynolds said,” This is Matthew Reynolds; do you want to see your family again today?”

When the threats were reported, police placed the building on lockdown, and the administrators were called.

Reynolds is being held at the North Central Regional Jail.
