Louisville man suspected of calling threat to Lawrenceburg day-care center

The Anderson County Sheriff's Office is looking for a Louisville man who is suspected of calling a bomb threat to a Lawrenceburg day-care center Thursday.

Warrants have been issued for the arrest of Craig E. Nokes, according to the sheriff's office.

On Thursday morning, an anonymous person called WLEX-TV in Lexington and said that he had planted a bomb at the Anderson County Head Start Day Care.

The Lawrenceburg-Anderson County dispatch center received information identifying the suspect as the husband of an employee at the day-care center.

The day-care employee told dispatch that she had received a call from her husband saying he was going to blow up the day-care building.

The day-care center was evacuated and a Kentucky State Police bomb-sniffing dog searched the building but did not locate anything.

The day-care center will be closed Friday.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Nokes is asked to call the dispatch center at (502) 839-5125.
