Less than a week after a deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue, a Winthrop Harbor man was arrested after making threatening phone calls to the Central Avenue Synagogue in Highland Park.

Dean R. West, 39, was arrested Nov. 1 and charged with a hate crime, which is a class three felony.

West called the synagogue on Monday, Oct. 29, and the phone call contained threatening statements.
