Eastern District of Virginia Federal Courthouse - Norfolk, Virginia

Case Number: 17-cr-135

Description: Norfolk, VA - Navy Sailor Sentenced for Series of Bomb Threats

A Virginia Beach-based Sailor was sentenced on March 1, 2018 to 15 months in prison for making a series of bomb threats directed at Navy assets aboard Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek.

According to court documents, Allante Martanaze Arrington, 24, made upwards of 12 threatening communications by phone to U.S. Navy ships and installation facilities aboard Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek in August 2017. Special Agents with NCIS quickly identified Arrington’s cell phone as the source of the calls through cell tower data and call records. Arrington was also assigned to one of the ships he threatened. Arrington’s calls were short and vague, but involved bombs poised to explode at base gyms, various ships, and a health clinic. The calls prompted a significant response from Navy and FBI explosive ordinance disposal and military working dog units, and caused Navy units to shelter in place for hours on the days the threats were made.

Tracy Doherty-McCormick, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, and Cliff Everton, Special Agent in Charge of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) Norfolk Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Raymond A. Jackson.

Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 15 months' in prison.
