TAMPA — After calling 911 seven times and threatening to blow up his neighbor's house, 54-year-old Delton Shelton got a ride to jail.
Shelton, of 12231 N 15th St., began calling police at about 8 p.m. Sunday, an arrest affidavit states. Even after an officer responded to his house, Shelton kept calling 911, police said.
When Shelton told a dispatcher he planned to place a bomb in his neighbor's home, officers searched him and found a plastic bag containing marijuana.
Shelton was arrested on charges of making a false 911 call, threatening to use a destructive device and possession of marijuana. He was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail on $8,500 bail.
