Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A La Crosse woman is charged with making a fake bomb threat at Gundersen Health System. 57-year-old Lonie Evans is facing a charge of bomb scare; a class one felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of three years and six months.
According to a criminal complaint, the La Crosse County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a bomb threat at the Gundersen Clinic in La Crosse on November 16th. The clinic was evacuated, but no bomb was found.
Officers later contacted Evans, who said she made the false bomb claim out of frustration due to not being able to receive a prescription. An initial appearance is set for December 5th.
