A Gastonia woman is behind bars for threatening to blow up the county police department. Gaston County Police officers first noticed the woman- Armanda Barnes- walking around the police department’s parking lot. Officers went out to check on her but didn’t arrest her at the time because she had done nothing wrong.
An hour later Barnes returned to the police department and came inside the lobby. When an officer approached her she told him she wanted to kill them because she was a veteran. After police arrested Barnes, they searched her vehicle. Insider her car they found a gas can and a lighter.
