Coventry Police have arrested a local woman on charges that she made three bomb threats at two banks in town last Thursday and Friday.

Police say Nicolina M. McLean, 45, reported that there could be bombs at First Niagara Bank locations at 3534 Main Street and 1372 Main Street in Coventry. Authorities say two of the threats were called in. The third was in the form of a hand-written note found in the night deposit box.

Police say similar threats were also made against banks in Manchester and Mansfield.

McLean is charged with three counts of first-degree threatening in connection with the three incidents in Coventry.

She was arrested after she was spotted driving her vehicle in Coventry.

McLean was held on $375,000 bail, pending arraignment Tuesday in Rockville Superior Court.
