By  | 

LAMPASAS (April 25, 2013)—Authorities in Lampasas have reopened several streets but the business that was targeted by an early Thursday morning bomb threat remained closed.

Lampasas police said at about 3:40 a.m. a threat against Windsor Foods, in the 600 block of East 3rd Street, was received and the building was immediately evacuated.

Lampasas police, along with Lampasas fire units, sheriff’s department units, a Fort Hood explosive ordnance disposal unit and management at the plant all responded.

As a result of the threat East 2nd, East 3rd, Pecan and Hackberry streets were closed but had reopened by 9 a.m.

One person who works at the Lampasas County Courthouse downtown said employees there were told not to report to work until the situation had been resolved.

Lampasas schools were open Thursday but some bus routes had to be changed to avoid the closed roadways.

Windsor Foods, based in Houston, has several management and production locations throughout the United States.

The company website says Windsor Foods, founded in 1996, produces frozen foods for the consumer market, commercial restaurants and food service operations.
