Federal law enforcement officials arrested a 37-year-old woman for allegedly making a bomb threat against Boston Children’s Hospital last month.
Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Rachael Rollins said that Catherine Leavy of Westfield, Massachusetts, called the hospital and told the operator: “There is a bomb on the way to the hospital. You better evacuate everybody. You sickos.”
Authorities obtained a warrant and tracked the call to a T-Mobile phone that led them to Leavy. They said that Leavy was arrested without incident at her home.
Leavy was charged with one count of making a false telephonic bomb threat and faces up to five years in federal prison if convicted.
