FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. — Detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department have charged three individuals believed to be responsible for making at least one of the bomb threats at Goodman Manufacturing here in Fayetteville.

Corey Cozad, an employee of Goodman at the time of the threat, Zachary Posey and Tyler Petty have all been charged with making a false report and criminal conspiracy, said Det. Lt. Joel Massey of the Fayetteville Police Department Thursday. Cozad has a $65,000 bond; Posey and Petty have $70,000 bonds.

“At this time, investigations continue into the other threats made at Goodman,” said Massey. “The FBI, TBI, U.S. Marshals Service and several other federal, state and local agencies are assisting in the investigations.”

Posey and Petty, along with Amberly Coats, have also been charged with theft under $500 and burglary. These charges are in reference to an incident that occurred in November at Lincoln Medical Center, Massey said, adding that Coats was an employee of the hospital at the time of this alleged incident.
