CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) - A Norfolk woman is accused of making several bomb threats to a Chesapeake Kohl's store.
Capt. Scott Saunders with the Chesapeake Fire Department said Barbara Lee Allen, 35, of Norfolk, was arrested Saturday, Oct. 5 and charged with three felony counts of threatening to bomb a building and three misdemeanor counts of harassment by computer.
Capt. Saunders confirmed Allen worked for a housekeeping service that did work at the Kohls Department Store located at 1547 Sams Circle. That store received multiple threats during the first week of October and was evacuated each time.
Fire officials responded and found nothing suspicious in response to the threats.
Allen was charged in Norfolk where the calls originated, according to Capt. Saunders. She does not face charges in Chesapeake even though the investigation was handled by the Chesapeake Fire Department.
Norfolk Police are investigating the cause of death for male found unconscious on the beach.
Several local families could be out on the streets by the new year, if things don't improve at a Chesapeake shelter.
A disturbing national trend has found it's way into eastern North Carolina. There have been reports of young men punching innocent people -- with the intention of knocking them out -- and the victims never see it coming.
