SHANDAKEN >> A Kingston woman is ac­cused of plac­ing four notes through­out the Shandaken busi­ness where she worked that claimed a bomb would go off, Ul­ster County sher­iff’s de­tec­tives said Mon­day.

Ni­cole M. Gorsline, 35, was charged with four felony counts of falsely re­port­ing an in­ci­dent. She was ar­raigned in Shandaken Town Court and re­leased on her own re­cog­ni­zance.

De­tec­tives said Gorsline was ar­rested fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a bomb threat at a busi­ness on state Route 28 in the early morn­ing hours of Mon­day. De­tec­tives said staff from the busi­ness called 911 af­ter find­ing a hand­writ­ten noted in­di­cat­ing a bomb would go off.

The name of the busi­ness was not pro­vided.

The build­ing was checked by law-en­force­ment per­son­nel with the as­sis­tance of a bomb-sniff­ing dog from the Sauger­ties Po­lice De­part­ment and the threat was de­ter­mined to be not cred­i­ble, de­tec­tives said. They said a sec­ond note was lo­cated dur­ing the build­ing search.

About 9 a.m., an ad­di­tional 911 call was placed from the busi­ness in­di­cat­ing ad­di­tional notes had been found, de­tec­tives said.

They said the in­ves­ti­ga­tion showed the four notes were placed through­out the busi­ness by Gorsline.
