Woman Arrested for Albany Bomb Threats

ALBANY, Ore. — FBI agents arrested a woman for allegedly calling in bomb threats to several Albany elementary schools.

Investigators say Jenelle Pinkston made a call in April to Waverly Elementary, threatening that a bomb would explode in 10 minutes. Pinkston allegedly made two more calls in May to Waverly and Periwinkle elementary schools.

In all cases, staff evacuated the schools but nothing was ever found.

Pinkston faces one count of threatening to use a destructive device.
