LAMPASAS (August 15, 2013)--A Copperas Cove woman was free on bond Thursday after she was arrested and charged in connection with a bomb threat that temporarily shut down a Lampasas food processing plant where she worked.

Rosaura Santiago was released from custody over the weekend after she posted a $25,000 bond.

She charged with criminal mischief and terroristic threat, a Lampasas police news release said.

The bomb threat against Windsor Foods in the 600 block of East 3rd Street was received at around 3:40 a.m. on April 25 and the plant was immediately evacuated.

Lampasas police Investigator Jody Cummings said Santiago was employed at the company at the time of the threat, to which
Lampasas police and firefighters, sheriff's deputies, and a Fort Hood explosive ordnance disposal unit responded.

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

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.
