( CNN) A young man accused of making a series of threatening phone calls to Jewish community centers earlier this year was charged in two federal complaints Friday.

Eighteen-year-old Michael Ron David Kadar, who holds dual Israeli and US citizenship, was arrested in Israel last-place month but police were still trying to determine his motivating at the time.

“This kind of behavior is not a prank, and it isn’t harmless. It’s a federal felony, ” articulated FBI Director James Comey in a statement on the example Friday. “It frightens innocent people, interrupts entire communities and expends limited law enforcement resources.”
