Sister of Boston Bombers Arrested for Bomb Threat
NEW YORK (AP) -
The sister of the Boston Marathon bombers was arrested Wednesday for threatening to bomb a woman.
Ailina Tsarnaeva, of North Bergen, N.J., made the threat against a Harlem woman in a telephone call Monday. She turned herself in at a Manhattan precinct; police charged her with aggravated harassment.
She had “people who can go over there and put a bomb on you,” Tsarnaeva told the other woman.
Officers released her pending a Sept. 30 court date. She has been required to check in with Massachusetts probation officers for failure to cooperate with a 2010 counterfeiting investigation.
