— A Goodyear employee was arrested Monday for a March bomb threat that shut down the Fayetteville plant.

Anthony Quinn Robinson, 38, of 1780 Roberta Court in Fayetteville, is charged with making a threatening call.

Investigators said Robinson called an employee at the plant on March 10 and told him there was a device planted in a break room that would blow up the facility.

The device, a pipe inside a package that appeared to be a pipe bomb, was found behind a vending machine by the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad. The device was not explosive. No one was injured.

Robinson was released from the Cumberland County jail after posting a $5,000 bond.

Further charges are expected against Robinson, who remained an employee of the company as of Monday, officials said.

    Workplace violence often stems from conflicts between employees. I hope their HR department is working on offering solutions to the entire plant.

    Way to lose a good job. He may still technically be employed but I can't imagine it'll be for long.

    Maybe he told his co-worker he WAS the bomb, and it all got misunderstood.
