Sheriff Paul C. May has released the following information:
Re: Bomb Threat
On October 26, 2011, at approximately 12:40 p.m., the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s received a call from an employee of HCA Raulerson Hospital advising that they had received a bomb threat. The suspect stated, “I am telling you, you have a bomb threat in your hospital.”
Deputies and detectives responded to the hospital. A thorough search of each department at the hospital was completed, which did not indicate the presence of any incendiary devises.
Further investigation into the matter developed two suspects, identified as 16 year old Toy Bohannon III, 1107 NW 5 Street, Okeechobee, Florida and 16 year old Haley Chouinard, 1012 NW 2 Street, Okeechobee, Florida. A referral will be completed on each juvenile and they will be turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice. Each will be charged with one count of False Report Concerning Explosive Device, a 2nd degree felony.
No further information at this time.
