Teen pleads guilty in bomb threat at CdA Casino

A North Idaho teenager pleaded guilty this week in connection with a bomb threat that cleared the busy Coeur d’Alene Casino last summer. Sinead Shrae Ambro, 18, of Plummer, faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for a federal charge of maliciously conveying false information. She was indicted in October for making a false 911 call shortly before midnight on July 15 that said five bombs had been placed in the casino and would explode within minutes. The threat evacuted the casino for more than three hours as bomb-sniffing dogs scoured the building. Investigators traced the call to a pay phone outside a market in Ambro’s hometown. Ambro entered the plea Wednesday and will be sentenced May 11 in Coeur d’Alene by U.S District Judge Edward Lodge.
