Election day bomb threat arrest

LINCOLN-A man from the Millinocket area is facing terrorizing charges.

Police believe 37 year old Michael Morrison is the person who called in a bomb threat on election day.

Officials say a man called the Lincoln Town Office Tuesday to report there were bombs in Mattanawcook Academy and at the Northern Penobscot Technical School.

Both buildings were evacuated, including the high school where residents had been voting in the election.

Officials later determined there wasn't a bomb and say the investigation led them to Morrison.

He's now facing two charges of terrorizing.

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
