Dover Police have arrested a Magnolia woman and a Dover man after receiving a number of telephoned bomb threats

The calls began coming into police headquarters at 1:27 p.m. March 28, said department spokesman Lt. Tim Stump. Dispatchers continued to receive threatening and disruptive calls from the same phone number throughout the day, leading to an investigation, Stump said.

Officers arrested Erika Roe, 20, of the 1800 block of Woodleytown Road, Magnolia, that same day and charged her with two counts of terroristic threatening, conspiracy, and malicious interference with emergency communications.

She then was released on a $6,500 unsecured bond.

Police also developed information on a second suspect, identified as Orland Batson, 20, of the 1000 block of South Little Creek Road, and obtained arrest warrant on him, Stump said. Batson turned himself in March 31, and was charged with the same criminal counts as Roe.

Batson was released on a $3,000 unsecured bond.
