USEC bomb threat incident
(2007-08-30)
(WOUB) - A Scioto County man is facing charges after calling in a bomb threat to the United States Energy Corporation plant near Piketon yesterday (Wednesday).
The Pike County Sheriff's office arrested John Morris of Portsmouth and charged him with inducing panic, a misdemeanor.
Sheriff Larry Travis says Morris, a sub-contractor working at the plant, apparently called in the bomb threat as a prank to his co-workers.
The plant was shut down for two hours after the threat was called in but no bomb was found.
