An employee’s visit to the bathroom at a Port of Catoosa company found him holding a bomb threat written on toilet paper Thursday afternoon.
Around 2:10 p.m. Thursday, Linde BOC Process Plant LLC Manager Eric Sandifer reported an employee had found a bomb threat written on toilet paper at the plant, located at 945 Keystone Ave. at the Port of Catoosa.
According to the call log, the threat stated a bomb had been planted in the building and “they are going to pay the price.”
Rogers County Emergency Management Director Bob Anderson said he was first on scene at Linde, and after a sweep of the building, nothing suspicious was located.
“(Employees) did an excellent job evacuating the building. They had 150 employees in two buildings,” he said. “Myself and the undersheriff and the investigator conducted a walk through with a plant employee and did not see anything out of the ordinary or suspicious.
“Everyone took this very seriously.”
According to Anderson, the threat was written in blue ink and the author had “good penmanship,” writing in block letters.
Undersheriff Barry Lamb and Chief Investigator Darrin Hester were on scene, according to Anderson, and spoke with the employee who found the threat. No suspects have been arrested in the case.
