Duval County Man Indicted And Arrested On Hoax Bomb Charge Involving Jacksonville International Airport


October 22, 2013

Jacksonville, Florida – Acting United States Attorney A. Lee Bentley, III announces the return by a grand jury of an indictment charging Zeljko Causevic (39, Jacksonville) with conveying false or misleading information.  Causevic was arrested on a federal warrant while in state custody and faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison.

According to the indictment, Causevic entered Jacksonville International Airport on October 1, 2013, and stated that he was in possession of a bomb.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of the federal criminal laws, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case was investigated by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, and the Transportation Security Administration. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kevin C. Frein.
