A Manassas woman was arrested this week after, police said, she threatened to bomb a Department of Motor Vehicles.

Officers were called to the Prince William County Tax Administration Office at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4, to investigate a bomb threat made by phone, Prince William County police said in a news release.

County staff reported that a woman, later identified as Renee Nicole Roberts, called the tax administration office “upset over a tax issue involving her vehicle,” the police news release said.

During the phone call, police said, Roberts threatened to bomb a DMV office. No specific DMV office was identified during the call, police said.

Officers attempted to locate Roberts at her home, but did not immediately find her, the news release said. Later that day, police located and arrested her.

Roberts, 26, of Vernon Street in Manassas, was charged with threats to bond.

She has a court date on Jan. 8. Information on her bond status was not immediately available.
