A Staten Island man pleaded not guilty Thursday to planting several fake bombs around the borough.
Omar Duran, 54, is charged with two counts of placing a false bomb, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment.
Duran allegedly left three devices this month.
Each allegedly had a name and a note written in Spanish.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says Duran allegedly tried to use the bombs to frame the fiance of a woman in his building before her wedding.
"The father figure was calling the federal authorities and giving them false information about this individual, all in an attempt to sort of interrupt the wedding plans of the young woman," Kelly said.
The couple did get married over the weekend.
Duran is due back in court on September 24.
He faces a maximum of 25 years in prison if convicted.
