West Point resident Omari Powe is set to plead guilty to misdemeanor telephone harassment in the West Point Municipal Court after a motion by the state to reduce a felony false report of a bomb charge.
In late 2012, according to a previous article printed in the Daily Times Leader, a bomb threat was phoned in at the local Walmart Supercenter. After investigative efforts on behalf of the West Point Police Department, a suspect was named and arrested in connection to the alleged threat.
West Point Chief of Investigations Albert Lee said investigators analyzed phone records provided by the business and proceeded to trace the number associated with the threat at the time the call was made.
