The police have arrested and charged a 31-year old woman with telephoning two bomb threats to the Seneca branch of South Carolina Bank and Trust. Melissa Ann Barksdale of the Shiloh Road was arrested yesterday on warrants charging her with telephoning the bank twice the morning of May 28 and claiming a bomb was in the By-Pass 123 bank. According to a Seneca Police Department investigative report, a female caller in the first call claimed “she had planted a bomb and it was set to go off in 30 minutes.” The bank was evacuated and the police were called. The police say Barksdale came to the police station yesterday and, after being arrested, was sent to the Oconee Detention Center in Walhalla.
