BOULDER, Colo. — A Jewish teenager who was arrested in Israel in March for his connection to a spate of bomb threats to Jewish community centers across the U.S. is also connected to one in Boulder, police said Friday.

The identity of the 19-year-old has not been released, but officials said the suspect holds dual citizenship in Israel and the U.S. The Boulder Jewish Community Center at 6007 Oreg Ave. was reported Jan. 31.

The teen also made threats to centers in Australia and New Zealand. He reportedly is a hacker who used camouflage technologies to mask his location and voice.

A search of the teen’s home turned up satellite equipment and other sophisticated software.

More phone threats and an emailed bomb threat to the Boulder Jewish Community Center never turned up explosives.
