Man jailed in St. Maarten for calling in false bomb threats at airport

PHILIPSBURG – A man who called in false bomb threats at St. Maarten’s Princess Juliana International Airport last November will spend the next year behind bars in the island.
 
Trinidadian-born Bryan Andrew Rymer, 42, was sentenced after being found guilty of the offence on Wednesday.
 
He had called in two bomb threats on the afternoon of November 22, 2015 – one to airport security and the other to police – claiming that a bomb in a car that was in the parking lot, would go off before an Air France flight departed.
 
His actions forced a shutdown of the airport’s operations for almost six hours.
 
The airport was eventually reopened after searches were conducted and no bombs were found.
 
Rymer, a database developer who lived in London at the time but was in St. Maarten at the time, was tracked down and arrested on Christmas Day 2015.
