Two Bomb Threats In Two Days At Greenwood Plant

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — For two days in a row this week a bomb threat to a Greenwood manufacturing plant caused an evacuation. The first bomb threat on Wednesday caused the entire plant and its parking lot to be cleared while teams searched the building for explosives. The next day, on Thursday, another threat was called in and the building evacuated again. No explosives were found. Police Chief Ray Moore told the Greenwood Commonwealth that it took a little over an hour for Leflore County Emergency Management Agency Coordinator Fred Randle and the county’s bomb-sniffing dog to walk through the building checking for explosives. Police are not saying whether they believe it was the same caller both days. The Leflore County Sheriff’s Department on Thursday brought a former employee of Milwaukee Tool in for questioning in the investigation, but Randle said that person is not considered a suspect.
