tarting on April 20, WMPD has responded to fifteen (16) bomb threats at the Cummins Distribution warehouse (4820 Indianapolis Road) located in Whitestown. These threats were called in by a female suspect at various times throughout the day, affecting Cummins workers, WMPD, the Indiana State Police Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit, and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Bomb Squad.
Following a very thorough and detailed investigation by WMPD Detectives and Cyber Forensic Investigators, we were able to identify Juanita Lange (32) of Plainfield, as a suspect for the bomb threats. Lange was arrested and is being held at the Boone County Jail pending numerous charges of
Felony Intimidation and False Informing.
We would like to commend our entire Criminal Investigations Division for the long hours they spent following every lead possible to bring this case to a close. It is very difficult to identify a suspect in cases such as these due to the various methods and applications available to try and conceal one’s
identity. Our CID was relentless and determined to leave no stone unturned and hold those responsible for their illegal actions which affected numerous people throughout our community as well as multiple local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.
