Kelly McKinney thought she knew how to deal with Connecticut DCF: she called in a bomb threat. Police evacuated the building without finding a bomb, and arrested Mrs McKinney.
Woman charged in DCF headquarters bomb threat
HARTFORD, Conn. —
A 47-year-old woman has been charged with phoning in a bomb threat to the Hartford headquarters of the state Department of Children and Families.
State police arrested Kelly McKinney on threatening, breach of peace and harassment charges after Thursday afternoon's bomb threat. She is detained on $25,000 cash-only bail and is to be arraigned Friday at Hartford Superior Court.
The building was evacuated, but state police didn't find any bombs or suspicious devices. They say they identified McKinney as the bomb threat caller after finding her phone number during a search of DCF call records. State police say McKinney later admitted making the threat.
The reason for the bomb threat isn't clear.
State records show McKinney has several convictions for larceny. It's not clear if she has a lawyer.
