Threat causes factory evacuation, bomb squad investigation

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. - A southern Kentucky factory was evacuated this morning, following a bomb threat.

Workers were forced out of the Williamsburg Plastic Factory after a woman called and said that she had placed a bomb in the building and was going to blow it up.

Police said that their bomb dog alerted to an area inside the factory, but when the Kentucky State Police Bomb Squad arrived and investigated, it was revealed that the dog had alerted to chemicals used in the factory.

Amanda Johnson of Tennessee was arrested on suspicion of making the bomb threat and charged with terroristic threatening. She is awaiting extradition to Kentucky.
