CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - A 30-year-old Conway man pleaded guilty to making a bomb threat or conveying false information.

Joshua Phillips Boyd made that plea on Nov. 14 and was sentenced to one year in prison. He was also ordered to pay $133 in court costs.

Warrants for his arrest explain that Boyd called an Horry County tip line in February 2013, saying his estranged wife and her brother were building a bomb to detonate at Kingston Elementary School.

After providing conflicting statements, investigators discovered that the bomb threat was false, and "the purpose of the bomb threat is believed to be malicious in nature, made to harass his wife by using law enforcement," the warrant stated.
