Note about Davis-Besse a hoax, police decide

OAK HARBOR, Ohio The perceived threat to the Davis-Besse nuclear power plant in Ottawa County s Carroll Township was deemed a hoax yesterday, Port Clinton police said.

The FBI and other law enforcement agencies had been investigating the possible threat since Sunday when Port Clinton police were notified that something suspicious had been written on a napkin at McCarthy s Restaurant & Irish Pub.

Authorities learned that the napkin was found Saturday, and that a restaurant employee wrote other words on it that made it look like a threat toward the power plant. The employee also confessed to fabricating the rest of the story.
