A woman from New York state has been charged with calling in the bomb threat that caused the evacuation of Yogi Bear Jellystone Campground on May 25.
Kristie L. Forkl, 41, of Lackawanna, N.Y., was charged with two counts of making terroristic threats and two counts of threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction, Trooper Kory Wardrop reported.
The campground was evacuated at about 9 a.m. and bomb-sniffing dogs helped police search the 53-acre site. No bomb was found and the campers were allowed to return to their camp sites by mid-afternoon.
