ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man has been arrested after authorities say he threatened to blow up the Albuquerque FBI field office with explosives folded into a burrito.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that 50-year-old Brian DeMarco was arrested Thursday just as he was boarding a bus to Amarillo, Texas, at the Albuquerque Greyhound bus station.

According to a criminal complaint, DeMarco told agents of his plot in a call to a West Virginia FBI office from his Albuquerque motel room.

The complaint says DeMarco also told agents that he had placed a timed bomb at the Albuquerque Social Security Administration building but no bomb was found.

DeMarco is facing charges of violating interstate communications laws and creating a hoax.

It was unclear if he had an attorney.
