Posted: Updated:

MOXEE, Wash. -- A suspect is in custody for calling in a bomb threat to Alexandria Moulding in Moxee.

The call came from a pay phone on South 1st St. in Yakima at about 6:30 Wednesday morning.

About 150 workers waited outside Alexandria Moulding for about an hour while deputies swept the building.

Deputies say that, with the help of employees, they identified a suspect.

The suspect, a 30-year old male, was interviewed and released. He then agreed to take a voluntary polygraph test, which he failed.

The suspect then admitted to making the bomb threat call to 9-1-1. He was booked into the Yakima County Jail and faces a felony charge of 'threat to bomb'.
