Two individuals were arrested on Wednesday morning after the Vincennes Police Department (VPD) says they were involved in faking a bomb threat at the Vincennes Community School Corporation (VCSC) Administration Building.
The incident started on Wednesday morning around 9:30 a.m., when Knox County Central Dispatch was contacted about a possible bomb threat involving the Vincennes Community School Corporation Administration Building on S. Quail Run Road in Vincennes, Indiana.
VPD says that during an investigation, detectives were told that a three-person group text message had occurred between three employees of Sodexo, a local company that provides meals for the school corporation.
According to VPD, during the text message exchange, a male employee identified as 60-year-old Rudy Loewen sent a text message stating to call in a bomb threat for the school administration, and a female employee identified as 42-year-old Erica Davis replied "NOW".
VPD says the third employee believed the texts to be real and called 911 stating there was a bomb threat for the school administration building.
Loewen and Davis were both arrested and transported to the Knox County Jail on felony charges of Intimidation and False Informing.
The police department says that there's no credible threat to the school corporation or the community.
