SA Man Didn't Want to Go to Work, Phoned in Bomb Threat

  A San Antonio construction worker who wanted a day off may soon get ten years off from work, Newsradio 1200 WOAI reports.

  Steve Gutierrez, 40, didn't want to go to work one day in July, when he was employed as a construction worker at the Coast Guard station being built at the Corpus Christi International Airport.

  So they say Gutierrez phoned in a threat to the airport warning that two bombs were planted in the airport and would be detonated, prompting a portion of the airport to be evacuated.

  Gutierrez today pled guilty to threatening to damage or destroy a structure using explosives.

  "He called the general contractor saying officials should expect two bombs to go off," the U.S. Attorney's office said in a statement.

  Gutierrez will be sentenced in December, and he could get up to ten years in prison.
