KCK Man Indicted for Airport Bomb Hoax


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Kansas City, Kan., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for a bomb hoax at Kansas City International Airport.

David James Cain, 33, of Kansas City, Kan., was charged in a two-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo.

Today’s indictment alleges that Cain conveyed false information about a bomb on Aug. 31, 2014. Cain allegedly told two persons at a ticket counter at Kansas City International Airport that there was a bomb in a truck he had parked in front of Terminal B of that airport.

The federal indictment charges Cain with one count of making a bomb hoax and one count of conveying false information.

Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Casey. It was investigated by the FBI and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
