German tourist accused of making false bomb threat at Disney World


ORLANDO, Fla. — A Florida judge on Monday issued the German
tourist accused of making a bomb threat at Walt Disney World a $10,000 bond.

The judge said the bond is normally set at $5,000, but it is
doubled in this case because the suspect, Jochen Naumann, 37, is from out of
the country.

Orange County sheriff’s deputies said Naumann, of Leipzig,
on Sunday morning told Disney employees at the security checkpoint for the
Magic Kingdom entrance that he had two bombs in his backpack.

The Disney employee questioned Naumann and he repeated the
bomb threat, authorities said.

A sheriff’s deputy stationed at the Disney checkpoint secured
Naumann and called a bomb-sniffing dog to check Naumann’s bag. The dog did not
find explosive devices in the bag.

He was taken to a security office, read his rights and
interviewed by deputies. He said he was only joking about having bombs,
according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies arrested Naumann and took him to the Orange County
Jail. He faces a charge of making a false report of a bomb.
