The call to blow up a government building came from a Lakewood post office.
A 45-year-old woman has pleaded not guilty to threatening to bomb or injure property and was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
The incident happened Saturday when the woman brought several bags inside the post office, made a purchase and then began talking loudly on the phone, according to charging papers.
An employee overheard her threatening to blow up a federal building and told her she was committing a crime but she claimed not to care, court records show.
The woman then called 911 and allegedly said, If I dont get some serious help and Ive cried out to you guys, I might blow up a government building. Thats not a threat, its a promise.
Police arrested her and booked her into the Pierce County Jail.
