Kelly L. Albrecht, 27, of Cranberry Township, Pa., was arrested at about 6 p.m. Friday when he returned to his vehicle at Cedar Point and charged with inducing panic, officials said. The simulated bomb -- which one police official said contained wiring of some sort -- was placed under Albrecht's vehicle earlier that day, near the front of the main parking lot, Cedar Point spokesman Robin Innes said.

Not just the cost of the call, pay for everything involved. Right up to the office suppplies used for this prank.

As for hoping someone sees it under the car, if it was the spaces I am guessing from the sounds of the article. This thing would have been fairly easy to see. Near the front by the handicapped spaces, there is plenty of room and the handicapped spaces don't fill up right away. That means it could be seen from a distance actually. Which would be more likely to see than in the middle. In the middle of the parking lot, people would actually have to get down to see it.

Perhaps he admitted it when the cops caught up to him? It's human nature to talk and someone who would do something like this is someone who wants to tell someone a story. Or he made other incriminating statements. It could have been as simple as this...

Stupid man walks up to his car, police approach.

"Hey, is this your car?"


"Did you put that thing under it on purpose?"


And off we go...
