HOUMA, LA (WVUE) -

A homeless man has been arrested after he allegedly claimed to be a terrorist and threatened to blow up Houma buildings.

Robert Hogan, a 51-year-old homeless man, called in the bomb threat on Monday night, Terrebonne Parish deputies say.

Deputies say the caller claimed to be part of a terrorist organization and would begin blowing up buildings in Houma Tuesday night. Officers were able to determine that the call came from a pay phone on Martin Luther King Boulevard.

Video surveillance from a nearby business revealed that the suspect who placed the call was a white male wearing a tan jacket, jeans and white shoes.

A deputy patrolling the area spotted Hogan and arrested him.

Hogan has been charged with one count of misuse of 911 and communication of false information related to a planned arson.
