Employee arrested in Sullivan after alleged bomb threat

Thursday, January 17, 2013

SULLIVAN -- An employee on a break Wednesday evening is alleged to have called 911 and reported there was a bomb in the Sullivan-based McDonald's restaurant where he worked.

The Indiana State Police, Sullivan County Sheriff's Office, and Sullivan Police Department responded to a 911 call at 8:24 p.m. reporting a bomb at the McDonald's located at 755 West Wolfe St. in Sullivan.

Officers arrived and during their investigation were able to determine that an employee on break had made the 911 call reporting the bomb. Further investigation revealed there were no explosive devices found and the report was false, according to ISP Public Information Officer Sgt. Joe Watts.

Tullie R. Evans, 31, of Shelburn, has charged with false reporting, a class D felony. His bond was set at $8,000 with 10 percent cash allowed.

ISP Trooper Tyler Van Ness took the employee into custody and incarcerated him in the Sullivan County Jail, Watts stated in a prepared news release.

Thats two ways to get off work early. The first is getting everyone out thinking there is a bomb in the building. The second, GOING TO JAIL! I love to see a well thought out plan come together.

I would've said that I had the trots, but that's just me.
