Suspect in 3 Butler County bank bomb threats sought
BUTLER COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - Greenville police and the FBI are working a "promising lead" of a bomb threat suspect.
Investigators say the suspect called in three bomb threats at three Trustmark Banks: two in Greenville and one in Georgiana. The threats were made Monday shortly after 12 p.m. Authorities had to check out the banks one at a time before determining there were no real threats.
"Had them searched for two hours or a little over while we did a search of the premises, both banks here and they did the same thing in Georgiana. We found nothing. We got a bomb dog to be on the safe side," said Greenville police chief Justin Lovvorn.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Department sent a K-9 to help search for any potential bombs.
