MUNCY – One man is allegedly taking his video games too seriously.

Nicholas Christian Vandine, 33, of 410 1/2 Louisa St., was arrested by state police after he allegedly threatened to bomb the Game Stop on Lycoming Mall Road Sunday.

Vandine allegedly called the store and began yelling that the store was trying to steal his money.

“Don’t you remember me? You got me black-listed from your company,” he was quoted as saying in an affidavit. “You’re lucky I haven’t got up there to put the bomb in yet.”

An employee told police Vandine’s made a previous bomb threat on Sept. 9. He was arraigned before Judge Jon E. Kemp and jailed in lieu of $250,000 bail.
