A criminal complaint unsealed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit alleged that Rodney Termini, a contract Con-Way employee in Illinois, sent two threatening Facebook messages April 15 to Con-Way Ann Arbor, the newspaper reports. The messages referenced Boston and said there was a bomb at the Ann Arbor and Illinois facilities.

Con-way Inc., a shipping and logistics company, moved its corporate headquarters from California to Ann Arbor Township in 2011. It's located on Old Earhart Road.

The Boston Marathon bombings killed three people and injured at least 260 others. Authorities say brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, were behind the attack. The older brother was killed last week after a shootout with police, while the younger was captured during a massive manhunt.

Termini has been charged with interstate communications of threats to injure, the Free Press reports.
