WFRM News Updates Roulette Bomb Scare

WFRM News:

The Potter County Human Services building on North Street in Roulette was evacuated this morning as a precaution after an employee discovered some suspicious items in an office.

Potter County EMA and Pennsylvania State police secured the building and are continuing their investigation, but county officials believe the items are training props used to test emergency response.

PCHS workers were released for the day and residents of the immediate area were evacuated to the Roulette Fire Hall.

Two bomb squads arrived on scene mid-day, one from Erie the other by helicopter from Hersey.

Potter County Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Steiner told WFRM the object was detonated by members of the squads.

A ‘bomb’ dog cleared another suspicious object found outside the building and found nothing during an inspection of the interior.

State police gave an “all clear” at about 2:15 p.m. and residents were allowed to begin returning home.

I heard that this was not training practice as they stated, but a disgruntled employee who got fired ...

Why would he leave a fake bomb? There were no explosives in the package.

Something just doesn't add up. If he were disgruntled, he'd leave a real bomb.

The item was NOT an explosive device. It was an item that was made up to LOOK like one, though. Also, the employee had NOT been fired, but had just recently retired. It is true that the former employee is facing criminal charges as a result of the incident, but it is irresponsible to speculate any more about the case. Police reports will surely be issued soon, as he has been arraigned and jailed in Coudersport. This is a story that should not contain speculation and rumor on here, as it was a serious matter and the charges against the man are quite serious.

Possible BOOM = BAD

No BOOM = GOOD

Let us all be thankful that there was NO BOOM!

Doesn't add up???? My thought, if someone does something like this they probably are not in the right frame of mind. Hard to uderstand reasoning by a person that is not thinking straight. Lucky we have more sane people than not in our area.
