LAMPASAS — City police Wednesday released the name of a woman arrested and suspected of causing more than $27,000 of operational damage to Windsor Foods and making a bomb threat in April.
Copperas Cove police arrested Rosaura Santiago, 45, of Copperas Cove, on Friday on warrants with charges of terroristic threat and criminal mischief, a Lampasas news release stated.
Coryell County Justice of the Peace Bill Price arraigned Santiago on the charges and set her bond at $25,000. She was released from custody.
About 3:40 a.m. April 25, Lampasas police, firefighters and Fort Hood K-9 bomb units were dispatched to Windsor Foods after a threat was discovered inside the ladies bathroom, said Lampasas Police Chief Tim Angermann.
The responding agencies determined the facility was safe later that day, but Lampasas police continued to investigate, the release stated.
Video surveillance and handwriting samples were used to help link Santiago to the incident, Angermann said.
Santiago was an employee of Windsor Foods at the time of threat, the release stated.
The $27,000 figure represents the estimated profits lost by the Lampasas facility on the day of the threat, which increased a criminal mischief charge from a misdemeanor to a felony, Angermann said.
