(KSL News) The suspect took a plea deal in a case involving a bomb threat at Hill Air Force Base.

William Jeffrey Stiffler admitted in court yesterday that in July he sent two phony threats to the base using the e-mail of a third party -- trying to get that person in trouble.

After the threats were sent, the base was locked down and searched, but no bombs were found.

As part of a deal with prosecutors, Stiffler pleaded guilty to one count of making a threatening communication and one count of transmitting a threat to kidnap and injure someone.

He will be sentenced in March.
