USF bomb threat suspect makes bail, while bus passenger accused of saying he had bomb still confined

TAMPA — The University of South Florida graduate who police say called in a fake bomb threat on Oct. 5 was released from jail over the weekend.

Markenson Innocent, 26, of Tampa posted $9,750 bail and was released Saturday night, according to jail records. He faces charges of making a false bomb report against state property, unlawful use of a two-way communications device, and disrupting a school campus.

A second man, USF student Vincent Thomas Perry McCoy, 23, remained in jail without bail Monday. Police say he told fellow shuttle bus passengers during the scare that he had a bomb, but none was found.
