BOMB THREAT: On October 6, the threat of a destructive device (bomb) was received at the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) in Leonardtown. The caller indicated the device would be inside the ECC facility. As a result of the perceived threat, operations were transferred to the backup communication center handling police, fire/EMS communications, along with critical 911 functions, without interruption. Officers from the State Police and Sheriff's Office responded to ensure the safety of employees and to secure the scene. Members of the K-9 Unit responded with specially trained explosive detecting dogs. The facility was checked for destructive devices. None were located.

BCI detectives assumed the investigation and subsequently identified Nicole Denise Ulmer, a black female, age 25, of St. Inigoes, as the person who telephoned the threat to ECC. Ulmer was arrested at her residence, charged with making a False Report of a Destructive Device and Telephone Misuse by BCI Detectives. Ulmer was transported to the St. Mary's County Detention Center and is currently incarcerated pending an appearance before the District Court Commissioner.
