National Crime Agency: The moment 19-year-old George Duke-Cohan was arrested by NCA officers
It followed an investigation by the National Crime Agency (NCA):
The court heard he sent hoax threats in emails to more than 1,700 schools, colleges and nurseries across the UK and America, claiming he would set off a device if money was not handed over. Hundreds of the schools had to be evacuated……………..NCA investigators, working with the FBI, also identified that while on pre-charge bail for the threats to the schools, Duke-Cohan made bomb threats to a US-bound plane via phone calls to San Francisco Airport and their Bureau police.
His defence barrister said psychology experts had described Duke-Cohen as very immature, but the prosecution said he craved attention from his followers on social media.
