Fugitive Who Threatened to Blow Up Lawyer's House Arrested in Vermont

John Large was located at an acquaintances house in Washington, Vermont

A Pennsylvania man wanted as a fugitive from justice for making bomb threats to an attorney's home and office was arrested this week in Vermont.

Vermont State Police said they became aware earlier this week that 51-year-old John Large, a fugitive from justice from Pennsylvania, might be staying with an acquaintance in Washington, Vermont. Large was wanted out of Pennsylvania for numerous charges, including terrorist threats.

According to the Times News, Large had called in a bomb threat to the home and office of a Pennsylvania lawyer. No explosive devices were found at either location. Large had also previously been charged with making threatening phone calls to a judge.

Vermont State Police located Large at a residence at 185 Turnpike Road in Washington on Tuesday and were able to take him into custody after the owners of the residence were removed.

Large was scheduled to be arraigned on the fugitive from justice charge on Wednesday in Orange County District Court. There is no word yet on when he will be brought to Pennsylvania to face charges there.
