MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A California woman has pleaded guilty in federal court in North Dakota to making threats against Minot Air Force Base.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says 24-year-old Tiffany Anderson, of Lompoc, Calif., called the base from California on Nov. 6, 2012, and falsely reported there was a bomb on base. Purdon says that on Dec. 20, 2012, Anderson called an early childhood Head Start program on the base and threatened to shoot children.

Purdon says Anderson admitted to making the threats in an attempt to cause trouble for her former boyfriend, who was an airman stationed at the base. She faces up to 30 years in prison and $750,000 in fines when she's sentenced next Feb. 3.
