Bomb threat suspect to undergo psychiatric exam

Print More

A federal judge in Burlington has ordered a man, who police say made a bomb threat in Colchester yesterday, to have a psychiatric exam. The mental exam should determine if 55-year old Roger Stockham of Saint Albans is fit to stand trial.

Stockham was arrested yesterday after authorities say he threatened employees at a veterans clinic at Fort Ethan Allen and claimed to have a bomb in his van. Seven buildings were evacuated while police and a bomb squad searched the area. No explosives were found and police say Stockham later admitted the threat was hoax.
