Johnson is accused of making threats towards her son’s probation officer after she became frustrated with him not being released from the Montgomery County Jail, investigators said in a report. 

She allegedly called a county probation officer, who works in the Reibold building on East Fourth Street, and left threatening messages, according to investigators. 

Detectives wrote that she threatened to harm the probation officer as well as Dayton and Trotwood police officers. Some of the messages made reference to a possible bomb and a timeline countdown leading to a possible explosion if her son was not released.

She was arrested by the Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team May 1 at a home in the 700 block of Elmhurst Road. 

Johnson is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. She remains booked in the Montgomery County Jail, according to records.
