Quitman Police Report
Sgt. Clint Perkins responded to a call of a bomb threat at Peoples Telephone at 102 N. Stephens St. Perkins contacted the administration and after looking at the email received by Peoples it appeared to be spam email. The email stated three bombs had been placed around a data center and never mentioned Peoples Telephone. The email requested $5,000 be sent to a link in the message and had been sent the night before. A check of the email by the Wood County Sheriff’s Office showed it had been flagged on multiple occasions at other businesses and was originating from Europe. Perkins and Chief John Farmer secured the inside and outside of the building. No further information was received, and no further incidents occurred.
