A bomb threat was called in to Silgan Plastics in Penn Yan Wednesday afternoon.
That prompted Penn Yan Police and Yates County Sheriff’s Deputies to respond to the plant’s Powell Lane location where they assisted employees in evacuating the building. Ontario County Sheriff’s and State Police canine units conducted a search of the building and grounds and found nothing. Employees were allowed to return to the building.
Village Police Chief Thomas Dunham tells Fingerlakesdailynews.com they are continuing to investigate the incident to determine who made the threat. The person responsible would face a felony charge.
