— Evansville police arrested a Janesville man on two counts of creating a bomb scare after police say he reported two bomb threats at Stoughton Trailers, 101 County M.

Joshua W. Beyer, 22, of 341 Rosewood Drive, Janesville, was arrested Thursday, according to a news release.


The arrest follows bomb threats made on May 11 and Thursday.


In the first incident, the bomb threat was written on a mirror in a men’s bathroom, Police Chief Scott McElroy previously said.


More than 100 employees were evacuated while police, along with Evansville Fire Department and Rock County Sheriff’s Office officials, searched the building.


McElroy could not be reached for information about Thursday’s threat.
