A woman phoned in bomb threats so her boyfriend could get off work and she could spend more time with him

Sep 28th

It's always important to spend time with the ones you love. But look, it's not this important:

An Etna woman who wanted to spend more time with her boyfriend was arrested after she directed two separate bomb threats at Puritan Medical Products where he worked, forcing evacuations and disrupting manufacturing operations, police and company officials said Friday.

Pittsfield police Chief Harold "Pete" Bickmore said the first threat was made around 9 a.m. Thursday when a woman called Maine State Police and said she was going to place a bomb at the Puritan plant at 129 North Main St. The same woman in a second call two hours later said she intended to place four pipe bombs near the plant, Bickmore said.

State Police notified Pittsfield police and the sheriff's offices in both Somerset and Penobscot counties, and then traced the call to Etna, Bickmore said. Penobscot deputies found the woman after interviewing people in an Etna neighborhood. The deputies secured a confession from the woman, who said there were no bombs, according to Bickmore.

Welp, I can't imagine they'll be spending too much time together from now on (unless the boyfriend calls in a bomb threat to the prison where she'll surely be lodging for the next few months).

For real, though: If you have to commit a felony to spend a little time with your man, how stable is the relationship after all? If she's trying that hard, they should probably just break up.

I mean... they should obviously break up either way. This is an easy call.
