A 44-year-old Michigan man faces charges after being accused of a bomb hoax near a concierge station at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, according to the arrest report from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

ABC News reported that Dandre Maurice Lundy, 44, told the investigators that he wanted to send a message that former President Donald Trump “is a beast” and had messed up his life.

Hotel security and employees evacuated the Trump hotel lobby and a nearby restaurant while Lundy allegedly placed a telephone bomb threat to the hotel, police said. The rest of the hotel tower was not evacuated. The bomb squad found that a suitcase and a duffel bag that Lundy allegedly left at a hotel service desk did not contain any explosive materials or anything considered dangerous.

Investigators on the scene found that he took a taxi from the motel to the hotel and back. Lundy, who was wearing an American flag hat, waved to security cameras before leaving in the same taxi he arrived in, the filing said.

He asked investigators following his arrest if he could have his suitcase back, saying that no one got hurt so there was no crime, as detailed in the police report. Lundy told the police that he put a Bible, a rock, a $1 bill and handwritten "scriptures" in the suitcase and he "believed Trump had messed up his life for the last three years," reported Fox News.

Lundy also told the investigators that he traveled from Michigan to Las Vegas on Monday and acknowledged that he knew a bomb threat would alarm people. He appeared before a Las Vegas judge Wednesday on six felony charges, including threatening and act of terrorism. Lundy remained at the Clark County jail Wednesday following his arrest Tuesday at a budget motel not far from the Trump building.

The judge set his bail at $60,000 and gave prosecutors until Tuesday to file a criminal complaint. A deputy public defender who temporarily represented Lundy at the hearing did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment on his behalf.
