Continental Tire offering reward for information on person(s) making bomb threats

MT. VERNON, IL — Continental Tire in Mt. Vernon is again offering $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in a recent bomb threat to the facility, this one unrelated to threats in April.

The latest threat to the plant was made Thursday, says the company. They say plant evacuation procedures were followed and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and Secretary of State Bomb Unit were notified. Law enforcement responded and found the threat was not credible.

Anyone with information about Thursday’s bomb threat are asked to contact the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office or anonymously through Jefferson County Crimestoppers.
