CLEVELAND — A man from Ohio who made bomb threats to courthouses in multiple states, including those in Klamath and Lake Counties, has pleaded guilty in federal court.

39-year-old Lonny Bristow of Mansfield entered his plea Thursday, waived a standard pre-sentence report and was sentenced to 51 months in prison.

Bristow was arrested in bomb threats made in November and December to courthouses and public buildings in Oregon as well as Nebraska, Washington, Tennessee and Mississippi.

The FBI said it traced numerous bomb threats to prepaid phone cards purchased at a Wal-Mart store in Upper Sandusky, about 40 miles west of Mansfield.
