Hialeah Woman Accused of Making Bomb Threats to DMV
A Hialeah woman was arrested after police said she called in multiple bomb threats to a Department of Motor Vehicles office in Opa-locka earlier this month.
Raiza Cueto-Alvarez, 54, was arrested Wednesday on two counts of threatening to throw or place a bomb or destructive device, an arrest report said.
According to the report, the first incident happened the morning of Aug. 7, when Cueto-Alvarez called the DMV office at 12601 Northwest 42nd Avenue and said a bomb was going off in five minutes. The building was evacuated and Miami-Dade Police bomb sniffing K-9s searched but found nothing, the report said.
The next morning, Aug. 8, Cueto-Alvarez called the same DMV office and made another bomb threat, the report said. The building was evacuated and searched again, but nothing was found.
Cueto-Alvarez was arrested and booked into jail, where she was being held on $15,000 bond Thursday, records showed. Attorney information wasn’t available.
