Houma Courrier

A construction worker who was working in Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center in Houma last month was arrested Wednesday in connection with a bomb threat at the hospital, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office said.

Otrell Renae Every, 24, 510 St. Charles Bypass Road, Thibodaux, faces charges of communicating false information of planned arson, failure to appear in court, possession of a controlled dangerous substance Schedule II, unauthorized use of an access card and theft, Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said.

Larpenter said someone called in a bomb threat to the hospital on July 22 and deputies traced the threat to a hospital phone line. Detectives later linked the call to Every, he added.

Every's bond was set at $75,300.00.
