RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn.- Officials with the Rutherford County Sheriff's Department have asked for the public's help to find the man they said called in a bomb threat to the Rutherford County judicial building last month.
Police said that 51-year-old William Moon from Tracy City has been charged with making a false report. According to officials, on May 31 around 8:45 a.m. Moon called the court clerk, saying there were three bombs inside the building. He said Judge Don Ash was the target, and the judge was moved to a secure location.
After further investigation, detectives said that Moon was supposed to be in Judge Ash's courtroom that day for a plea on charges of theft, vandalism, aggravated criminal trespassing and possession of burglary tools. He did not show up in court.
