City police

Area police are investigating a bomb scare against a Putnam County industry called in to police around 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Greencastle Police Assistant Chief Brian Hopkins said that a Hendricks County emergency dispatcher received a call from the Marathon gas station on U.S. 40 in Belleville with the person stating that a bomb was located at

Dixie Chopper.

Since authorities did not know which Dixie Chopper location was intended by the caller, officers responded to the manufacturing facility at Fillmore, the financial center in Greencastle and the business center at the Putnam County Airport.

All locations were being checked Tuesday evening by bomb-sniffing dogs from the Indianapolis Metropol-itan Police Department.

Hopkins said that police do have some leads on who placed the call, and the investigation into the incident would continue.
