FBI agent ties flight attendant to second alleged hoax

Posted:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP)- An FBI agent says a flight attendant accused of fabricating a story that prompted an emergency landing in North Dakota has admitted to causing a similar incident on the East Coast.
    
Justin Cox-Sever is charged in federal court in North Dakota with interfering with the operation of an aircraft and communicating false information. Authorities allege he stuffed a bag with towels and reported it as a suspicious package making beeping noises.
    
The Dickinson airport was temporarily shut down Wednesday after the SkyWest plane traveling from Minneapolis landed.
    
FBI Special Agent Daniel Genck says in court documents that Cox-Sever also admitted to fabricating a bomb threat on a July 7 flight from Charlottesville, Virginia, to Chicago. The flight was diverted back to Charlottesville.
    
The Associated Press requested comment from Cox-Sever's attorney.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
