BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

Police arrested a Beaufort man Thursday morning after he made a bomb threat to a local car dealership.

Just before 10 a.m., sheriff's deputies responded to Dan Vaden Chevrolet on Boundary St. in reference to the business receiving a bomb threat via phone. According to employees, a male caller had stated that everyone needed to get out of the building because he had put a bomb inside.

The business was then evacuated and searched by the Beaufort Co. Sheriff's Office Bomb Team. There was no device located.

During the investigation, the call was traced to a payphone in the area of Sunhouse Petroleum on Trask Pkwy. Investigators reviewed surveillance video from the store and a white male was seen making a call from the phone at the same time the bomb threat was received.

The suspect was identified as 39-year-old Tarrie Daniel Reynolds, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office. After he was positively identified, Reynolds was arrested and transported to the Beaufort Co. Detention Center, where he is awaiting a bond hearing.

According to authorities, the motive for the threat and the reason for Reynolds' choice of the dealership as a target remain unknown. No connection has been established between Reynolds and the business at this time.
