Police in a southern Alberta town say a man in the U.S. has been charged in connection with alleged bomb threats made to schools and a business in the community last week.

Taber police announced in a statement from Chief Graham Abela late Saturday that a man in Illinois faces charges related to the threats.

The Horizon School Division said last week in a letter sent home to parents that two schools were the focus of bomb threats in anonymous voicemail messages early Friday.

Police said they investigated and determined the threats to be hoaxes.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that it was contacted late Friday by police in Taber in relation to 10 bomb threats that were made over a 48-hour period. Locations, it said, included schools, a hospital, a bank, a police agency and a store.

The statement said Justin Bagley of Elkville, Illinois, faces 10 counts felony disorderly conduct and is being held in the Jackson County Jail.
