Bomb threat caller off to prison

Laqarrius Quintae World was sentenced to three years in prison followed by seven years on probation last week after pleading guilty to multiple charges stemming from a string of bomb threats called in to Lamar businesses May 15, 2016. Though no explosives were found, the multiple calls in quick succession strained the resources of local first responders. Additionally, each location had to be cleared by bomb sniffing dogs. World was identified through phone records and was arrested the day after the threats at his home on Johnstonville Road where he was also tending a marijuana crop. He had not cleared the threatening calls from his phone at the time of his arrest. World, 27, entered guilty pleas to one count of manufacturing marijuana and eight counts of transmitting a false public alarm and was sentenced by Judge Bill Fears March 30. The threatening calls were made to Roses, Family Dollar, CVS, Mc-Donald’s, Pizza Hut and Hot Shot, all in Barnesville; and Dollar General in Milner.
