Fake bomb could lead to real jail time for Anadarko woman

A 39-year-old Anadarko woman is in jail on $50,000 bond after, investigators said, she admitted to putting a fake bomb at a church.

Donna M. Neconie made her initial appearance Monday in Caddo County District Court where she received a felony charge of using a simulated bomb to threaten or intimidate, court records indicate. The crime is punishable by between 3 to 10 years in prison.

Neconie is accused of putting a fake bomb by the front door of the Anadarko First Christian Church on Jan. 16, according to the charge.

Anadarko Police Officer James Howard said in the court affidavit that he was contacted shortly after 2 p.m. Jan. 16 about a suspicious package at the church, 212 SW 2nd, after church members reported the item by the front door. Howard said the package appeared to be a white cardboard box situated on the ground directly in front of the double-glass doors. It was wrapped in green tape and on the right side of the box, near the top corner, was a small electrical type device that appeared to be attached along with a small plastic storage box on the box’s left side that contained multiple electrical diodes and fittings, the affidavit states.
