CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -- A former Conway resident was arrested in Kansas for terroristic threatening Monday.
After more than 9 hours, I-70 west of Topeka, Kansas, re-opened around 10:30 Monday night.
The reason for the closure? Authorities say a former Conway resident claimed he left explosive materials in a nearby hotel and then fled the scene.
50-year-old Christopher Spence has not lived in Conway since 2008. But, according to Kansas news media, is still listed as an Arkansas resident.
Local and state police in Kansas say they are investigating the reason they say Spence caused such a disturbance outside of Topeka, Kansas.
Police say Christopher Spence called 911 saying he left something dangerous inside a Ramada Inn hotel room in Junction City (west of Topeka, KS). Police spotted his truck on I-70 which led to the interstate shut down.
