    FALMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - Police in Massachusetts have arrested a Connecticut man they allege claimed he brought a bomb on to a Cape Cod-to-Martha's Vineyard ferry.

    Falmouth police say 45-year-old Krzysztof Malz of New Britain, Conn., was arrested at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday 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.

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

    Falmouth police say Malz told them it was a joke.

    He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Monday on a charge of making a threat concerning the location of dangerous items. WXTK- FM reports his bail was set at $2,500. His next court date was set for May 15.
