Police in Massachusetts have arrested a New Britain man they allege claimed he brought a bomb onto a Cape Cod-to-Martha's Vineyard ferry.

Falmouth police said Krzysztof Malz, 45, of New Britain, was arrested on Sunday evening after workers at the Steamship Authority's Woods Hole Terminal contacted police because a man preparing to board the ferry said he had a bomb in his car during a security screening.

Staff from the Steamship Authority called police at 9:30 p.m., according to a news release. Malz was preparing to board the 9:45 p.m. ferry.

Falmouth police and the state police bomb squad searched the boat, but found no threat.

Falmouth police said Malz told them it was a joke.

He was held overnight without bail and will be arraigned on Monday on a charge of making a threat concerning the location of dangerous items.
