Cops hit out at man behind bomb hoax
POLICE have said the placing of a suspicious device in a block of flats on the day of the General Election last year was a deliberate attempt to cause panic.
Their comments come after Peter
Conoboy, 48, pleaded guilty at Glasgow’s High Court and is due to be sentenced next month.
Superintendent Andy Edwards, of Lanarkshire police division, said: “The placing of this device was a deliberate attempt to cause panic and disruption to both the residents of Glen Tower, who had to be evacuated in the middle of the night, and the wider community on what was the date of the election.”
