A Summerville teen is in jail after investigators said he threatened to blow up a Berkeley County office Monday afternoon.
Aaron Kayan Drews, 18, of Trenholm Drive is charged with conveying false information regarding attempted use of a destructive device. The crime is a felony and carries a sentence of one to 10 years in prison if convicted.
A counselor at the Vocational Rehabilitation Center on South Live Oak Drive in Moncks Corner said somebody left a message on her answering machine at 2:39 p.m. Tuesday threatening to blow up the building, Berkeley County Sheriff's Office spokesman Dan Moon said. The counselor suspected an 18-year-old foster child she had recommended be terminated from the program.
Drews was arrested and was being held at the Hill-Finklea Detention Center Tuesday.
