SANDUSKY

Cedar Point police arrested an employee Wednesday on charges he called Sandusky police and claimed there was a bomb at the park.

Erie County Emergency Management and the FBI got involved when Kenney Edwards, 19, Detroit, called police at 10:38 a.m.

Edwards reportedly said, "There is a bomb at Cedar Point. There is a bomb at Cedar Point," then hanging up..

He was charged with felony inducing panic and false alarm and placed in Erie County Jail on $15,000 bond.

"Whether he was going to set a bomb or not, I don't know the details," Sandusky Lt. Mel Burns said Wednesday.

Edwards was taken to the Sandusky Police Department at 6:30 p.m. before being transported to Erie County Jail.

Cedar Point spokesman Robin Innes said park police worked with Sandusky police until the arrest was made. The park remained open and the threat was "without foundation," he said.
