PITTSBURGH (AP) – A man accused of ramming his dump truck through the security gate at the FBI building in Pittsburgh has again had his preliminary hearing on state charges postponed.
Wednesday’s hearing for 48-year-old Thomas Richard Ross, of New Waterford, Ohio, was rescheduled for Jan. 12.
Allegheny County prosecutors aren’t explaining why the case was delayed again. Ross doesn’t have an attorney listed in online court records, which say he remains incarcerated. Federal authorities, who have filed a separate charge, also aren’t commenting.
Ross is accused of running eight red lights and driving recklessly before being stopped by police near the FBI building. Authorities say Ross claimed to have a bomb before speeding off and through the gate. No bomb was found and nobody else was hurt.
