Third bomb scare suspect captured

DECATUR -- Police found a third man they say was involved in a bomb threat. 21-year old Joseph Bell is behind bars.

Police have been looking for him for a few weeks. They already arrested two other men, Jesse Lee Kelley and Phillip Harpool, last month.

The incident happened April 20. Police say the trio called St. Mary's Hospital saying there was a bomb inside.

Investigators found nothing but traced the call to a hotel where they found out who had checked into the room. All three face similar charges.
