A Waterloo, Iowa man who mailed bomb threats to the FBI office in Omaha was sentenced Wednesday to time served.

Thirty-year-old Matthew Fell pleaded guilty to making a false threat. He has been behind bars for 15 months while awaiting final disposition of his case.

Postal workers at a Lincoln post office found an envelope in June 2012 that had "This is a Bomb!" written on it. There was no bomb in the envelope, but it did contain another envelope that was addressed to the FBI in Omaha. That envelope contained a piece of paper and a thumb drive. Omaha postal workers found a similar envelope a week later.
