St. Clair Man Arrested for Making Terrorist ThreatAugust 18, 2011
A St. Clair area man was arrested on Wednesday and charged on Thursday with making a terrorist threat after he phoned in a bomb threat to the local Patients First facility, 1101 Caldwell Drive, on Wednesday morning.
Kevin L. Hogue was arrested and charged with the Class D felony. He is being housed at the Franklin County Jail. Bond was set at $35,000.
The event unfolded beginning at 11:50 a.m. Wednesday. No one was injured.
Officials say Hogue allegedly called Patients First and threatened to blow up the building with a fertilizer bomb. 13 employees and eight patients were in the building at the time.
Management locked down the facility and called 911. St. Clair Police notified the Sheriff’s Office and asked deputies to respond to Hogue’s residence. Authorities say Hogue admitted to making the threat because he was upset about losing his Medicaid benefits. No bomb making materials were found in his home. Hogue is being held in the Franklin County Jail on a cash bond of $35,000.
