Police: Wife Threatened To Blow Up Planes


FORT MYERS, Fla., Nov. 9 (UPI) — Authorities in Florida say a woman threatened to blow up planes when police refused to help her with her husband’s work schedule.

Lee County Port Authority Police said Soraya Evette Billinge, 36, called from her cellphone and told the dispatcher she was upset about her husband working nights because she doesn’t like being home alone, WBBH-TV, Fort Myers, reported Tuesday.

A transcript of a recording of her phone conversation with the dispatcher indicated she said her husband works for Delta Airlines at the airport.

Billinge became upset when the dispatcher told her police could not help with her problem, police said.

“OK I blow up, I blow up 10 planes,” she allegedly said before hanging up the phone.

Police said they arrested Billinge after her husband brought her in to the police offices. They charged her with making a bomb threat and making a false report.
