A Georgia man was indicted on 15 counts related to bomb threats in Palm Beach County.

Preston McWaters, 25,  was arrested early this month in Georgia. 

According to the FBI, Preston placed fake bomb threats into area schools, the airport and a business.

Palm Beach County Schools Superintendent Dr. Robert Avossa said the threats caused a big disruption for students, teachers and parents, costing the district money and time in the classroom.
