MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Officers with the Martinsburg City Police Department say a Hedgesville woman who's been charged in robbing the CNB Bank this Monday, is now facing additional charges in connection to a bomb threat.

The threat happened Tuesday, October 15, 2013 in the 400 block of West Stevens Street. Officers say the area included several houses and Berkeley County Government offices. An employee advised officers she received a call from a woman who said, "Evacuate the building, there is a bomb." The surrounding buildings were evacuated, and explosive scent detection K9 teams searched the area. No explosives were ever found. 

City Police were able to determine the phone call came from a payphone in front of the Family Dollar on Edwin Miller Blvd. in Martinsburg. Police say they were able to watch store surveillance from area businesses, and were able to get a photo of the woman. 

As we've reported Linda Marie Terry, 60, of Hedgesville was taken into custody this Monday, October 28, 2013 after police say she held up a CNB Bank on TJ Jackson Drive in Martinsburg. Investigators had found her shortly after the robbery with a bag of money and socks over her hands. Terry was charged with one-count of robbery and taken to Eastern Regional Jail. 

Officers were able to identify Terry as the same woman who called in the bomb threat over a week before. On Friday, November 1, 2013 Terry was charged and served with a felony warrant for false report of a bomb.
