Man who terrorized community with multiple bomb threats paroled

By Walter Geiger A local man who terrorized the community by calling in multiple bomb threats to local businesses on May 15, 2016 has been released on parole after serving just over a year of a three-year prison sentence. Lagarrious Quintae World, 28, was paroled June 12. While on parole, he will live with a family member, Sammy World, at 101 Grove Street in Barnesville. World entered guilty pleas to eight counts of transmitting a false public alarm and one count of manufacturing marijuana on March 30, 2017. In addition to his prison sentence, he got seven years probation. Threats were made to Roses, Family Dollar, CVS, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Hot Shot, all in Barnesville, and Dollar General in Milner. 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. A review of those phone records solved a similar bomb threat case at Roses just seven weeks earlier to which World also pleaded guilty.
