Marital Woes Lead Lynwood Woman To Call In False Bomb Threat At LAX

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A Lynwood woman is facing federal terrorism charges after she made a false bomb threat to delay her husband’s flight out of Los Angeles International Airport.

According to court documents, Johnna Woolfolk called in a bomb threat to AirTran on Nov. 27. Woolfolk told a representative that her husband was planning to blow up an Atlanta-bound flight, FBI officials said.

Airline officials pulled Woolfolk’s husband off the flight. He denied the charges and told officials that he and his wife were having marital problems and that they recently had a fight.

FBI agents later interviewed Woolfolk at her Lynwood home who admitted to the call.

She was charged with providing false and misleading information. Woolfolk is expected to enter a plea next week in federal court.
