PITTSFIELD, Maine (WABI) - An Etna woman who wanted to spend more time with her boyfriend has been arrested after calling in two separate bomb threats to Puritan Medical Products in Pittsfield where he worked.

33-year-old Kayla Blake has been charged with a felony count of terrorizing.

Police were notified of the first threat to the company around nine Thursday morning.

Police says she called Maine State Police and said she was going to place a bomb at the Puritan plant on North Main Street.

Two hours later, Blake called again saying she intended to place four pipe bombs near the plant.

Blake later confessed to police there were no bombs.

About 400 people at both Puritan plants in Pittsfield and Guilford were evacuated Thursday.

Employees returned to work Friday.

Blake was taken to the Somerset County Jail where bail was set at $1,500.
