BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 37-year-old, Oran Orval Dawsey, of 446 Stowe Lane, Unincorporated Cocoa, after a Federal Warrant was issued by the U. S. Magistrate in Orlando.

Dawsey was charged federally with making a bomb threat by telephone. He was turned over to the United States Marshall’s Office and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

The arrest was the result of a joint investigation between the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The investigation revealed that on the morning of September 22, an individual made a telephone call to the Moore Justice Center and stated that a bomb was located inside the courthouse, according to Major Tod Goodyear of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

In response, the facility was evacuated and members of the Sheriff’s Office Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit searched the building for an explosive device.

Although no such explosives were located, all official business operations was suspended.

Investigators determined that on the morning the bomb threat was made, Dawsey failed to appear for a scheduled court appearance at the Moore Justice Center in a criminal case for which he was facing a possible prison sentence.
