Woman accused of bomb threat against employer
Nicole M. Gorsline, 35, of Kingston was charged with four felony counts of falsely reporting an incident.
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.
