GONZALES - Police in Louisiana arrested a Texas man after they said he called in a bomb threat to an Ascension Parish plant.

Gonzales Police accused Trenton Marshall Osburn of Baytown, Texas of terrorizing in connection with the May 22 incident.

Police said Obsurn called the CB&I office in Gonzales and told them they had 30 minutes to evacuate the Williams Olefins plant, then hung up. After the call, sheriff's deputies evacuated the plant as a precaution.

Investigators said the call came from a restricted number that they traced back to Osburn's cell phone. Gonzales Police said they also learned Osburn was a CB&I employee working at the plant the day of the call.

Detectives got an arrest warrant for Osburn and took him into custody Tuesday morning. Police said Osburn told them it was extremely hot at the plant and he needed a break, which is why he placed the call.

Police said Osburn also has an outstanding warrant from Kenefick, Texas on suspicion of making a terroristic threat against a public servant.

Gonzales Police booked Osburn into the parish jail, where he is awaiting bond.
