The Bossier Sheriff's Office arrested a Shreveport man Friday night for making bomb threats to a Bossier subdivision.

Kevin A. Larue, 27, of the 400 block of Flournoy Lucas Road, was arrested around 8 p.m. Friday night for making multiple calls to 9-1-1 operators earlier Friday claiming he had placed pipe bombs in the Rosedale Place subdivision in Bossier City and that residents had until 1 p.m. to evacuate.  

Rosedale is located off of Airline Drive two miles north of I-220.

Deputies thoroughly investigated the neighborhood for any signs of explosive devices, and none were found.  No evacuations were ordered, but residents were identified as they entered and departed the subdivision during a few hours Friday.   Larue admitted to detectives that it was all a hoax and that there were never any explosives.  

Larue is charged with five counts of communicating of false information of a planned bombing and transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility in Plain Dealing.
