ROGERSVILLE — Rogersville police say a TRW Automotive employee who wanted to get out of work and go home during the Aug. 22 night shift allegedly called in a bogus bomb threat that cost the company about a million dollars in production.

Brandon Tyler Powers, 23, 534 Church Lane, Church Hill, was arrested early Thursday morning on a warrant charging him with felony filing a false report.

On Aug. 22 shortly before 2 a.m., Rogersville police, firefighters and Hawkins County EMS were dispatched to the TRW plant located at 7500 Highway 11-W in response to a bomb threat received at the plant’s security guard shack.
