Three Bomb Threats in Two Years, but No Arrests

  Email   Print

A bomb threat was called into a logistics company via a third party, but no bomb was found. The threat was made on a company called Johnson Controls on Malloy Lane 2-days ago in Murfreesboro. When police arrived on the scene they searched the property, but did not find anything unusual. The building was cleared and a waiver was signed by management at the company.

What is odd about the threat is that it was called into the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Division and not into the actual company, nor was it called into the City of Murfreesboro Police Department by the person making the threat. In other words, the information was relayed from the Warrants Division to city police dispatchers. Little information is known about the source of the call.

This is the third time that such a threat was made at Johnson Controls. In 2012, two threats were called in on the very same day. Both of those calls occurred on September 17th of 2012. During the two calls then, the night shift had to be vacated from the building. One of those two callers even gave an exact time of when a bomb was set to detonate. In both of those cases, no bomb was found and the alleged caller was said to be the voice of a male. No arrest has been made in any of the three cases.
