MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marshals are asking for the public’s help in tracking down a suspect wanted in connection with a bomb threat.
A felony arrest warrant has been issued for 51 year-old William T. Moon of Tracy City for making a false report. Investigators allege that Moon called in the threat to the Rutherford County Judicial Building May 31.
The threat closed the Judicial building for several hours while bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in to search the facility.
Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Lisa Marchesoni says a reward is being offered.
“The Rutherford County CrimeStoppers is offering a reward up to $1000 cash. Anyone who has information may call CrimeStoppers at 893-STOP, or the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office at 898-7770.”
Investigators say Moon was scheduled to appear before Circuit Court Judge Don Ash the day of the threat was made. Moon failed to appear that morning to enter a plea to charges of theft, vandalism, aggravated criminal trespassing and possession of burglary tools.
