Bomb Threat Arrests 

Federal authorities have nabbed the person they think made a series of bomb threats in the Bangor area.

A Hampden woman stands accused.

Authorities say 46-year old Jodi Holmes mailed threatening letters that forced three schools to close in March.

John Bapst High School, Hampden academy and Bangor Christian Schools all received bomb threats in the mail.

All three were closed on the day the letter indicated the bombs would go off, but nothing happened.

Now Holmes is facing three counts of mailing bomb threats, which could result in up to 10-years in prison on each count if she’s convicted.

Holmes made her first court appearance in U.S. District Court in Bangor Wednesday afternoon, a court document states she confessed to the crimes to Hampden Police.

Holmes will remain at the Penobscot County jail until her next court appearance, which is scheduled for next week.
