Police to charge woman with bomb threat

FINDLAY - Police say they plan to charge a Findlay woman with inducing panic for calling in a bomb threat to the downtown offices of the Marathon Petroleum Co. Wednesday afternoon.

Lt. Sean Young said Lorraine Wilkins, 39, a former Marathon employee, admitted to calling Marathon at 4:20 p.m. and saying there was a bomb in a vehicle parked in a company lot.

He declined to say what prompted the bomb threat. Employees were evacuated from Marathon's east building, and streets were blocked off in the vicinity. No explosives were found, and police were able to track down the caller by working with Marathon security personnel, Lieutenant Young said.
