VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Two Lowndes County jail inmates are accused of committing another crime while behind bars.

23-year-old Kareem Foster and 19-year old Asa Balloon are now charged with felony terroristic threats and acts after police say they called 911 from jail May 14th and said there was a bomb in South Georgia Medical Center.

Investigators found no bomb and traced the phone call to the jail.

Balloon was in jail for a burglary charge and Foster was there for a probation violation.
