A Racine County man was arrested after allegedly threatening to bomb a bank in Waterford Tuesday afternoon, although authorities later reported the briefcase that supposedly carried a bomb did not actually have any explosive devices inside. The man has not been publicly identified other than his age, 52, and that he is a Racine County resident. He is reported to currently be in the Racine County Jail. According to a release from the Racine County Sheriff's Office, which led the investigation and response, as well as an alert from the Village of Waterford Fire Department: At 2:47 p.m. Tuesday, a 911 call came from an employee at Community State Bank, 810 Fox Lane, who said the man, was "a known customer" of the bank and that he "was threatening staff with a bomb in a briefcase." The threat was made while the man was in the bank's drive-thru.
