WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — A Westminster woman has been charged with calling in a bomb threat to the Carroll County Emergency Operations Center.

Maryland State Police say Serena Sue Jones, 30, called the emergency center Monday morning with a false report of a bomb in the Westminster courthouse. The call led authorities to evacuate and search the district and circuit court buildings and shut down area roads.

Jones was arrested at a relative’s house Monday night and was to appear before a district court commissioner on a charge of making a false statement about a destructive device.

It was not immediately clear if Jones had a lawyer.
