LEAGUE CITY, TX (KTRK) -- A man is accused of making a threat that led to the evacuation of a League City library Monday.

Investigators say a call came into the Helen Hall Library shortly before 5pm from an interpreter for the hearing impaired on behalf of a caller. The interpretation service indicated the man using the service was making a bomb and mentioned the library.

League City police evacuated the area as a precaution. They later identified Brandon Althoff of Dickinson as the caller and quickly detained him.

Althoff was charged with making a terroristic threat, a class A misdemeanor. His bond was set at $2.500.
