Man Nabbed for Bomb Threat at Museum

A Jewish resident of Silver Spring, Md., apparently angry over a building being torn down to make way for the U.S. Holocaust Museum, threatened to explode a bomb at the museum’s site Wednesday.

Kenneth Kipperman, 40, told police he was an employee at the power plant of the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, which is being razed to make way for the museum. Kipperman was arrested without incident after police discovered he had no explosives. No charges have been filed against Kipperman, who was sent to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
