Man Jailed In Fla. Bank Robbery Gets Bomb Charges

MIAMI (AP) — A man already jailed on charges of using a fake bomb in a South Florida bank robbery attempt is being charged with using bomb threats in trying to extort millions of dollars from the Publix supermarket chain.

Federal court documents unsealed Wednesday charge Brian Henderson claimed in emails to Publix officials that he would plant bombs at grocery stores and detonate them unless his demands were met. Henderson is also being charged with making similar threats to a New Jersey business.

The documents show one small explosive device was detonated outside a Publix in Dania Beach but it did no damage. The emails show Henderson sought $50 million from Publix.

Henderson has pleaded not guilty in the bank robbery case. He has a Friday court date on the new charges.
