SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho woman has pleaded guilty to making a phony bomb threat in what prosecutors say was an effort to postpone her sentencing in a felony drug case.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that Robin Ann Eby entered the guilty plea on Monday, admitting she phoned in a bomb threat that emptied out the Bonner County Administration Building on the eve of last November’s general election. Eby intended to call the newspaper to relay the bomb threat, but mistakenly dialed an assisted living facility in Sandpoint, which forwarded the information to authorities.

Police traced the call to Eby’s mobile phone. Prosecutors said she placed the call the same day she was scheduled to be sentenced for possessing methamphetamine. She will be sentenced in July for the hoax.
