Thomasville-- A judge denied bond for a man police say made a bomb threat at a Thomasville bank.   Investigators say 38-year-old Philip Facchini was doing business at Bank of America on Highway 19 in Thomasville.

He told police he did not like answers he was getting from bank workers, so he threatened to blow up them and the bank. The workers called police.   "He kind of refused to leave at first. The officers had to take him down to the ground and handcuff him. They arrested him with no further incident," said Sgt. Melven Johnson of the Thomasville Police Department.

Facchini is charged with making terroristic threats and acts, a felony.  Police found no explosives on him, or in the area.
