All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Hot Springs Police Officer Murray reports that his department, the Hot Springs Fire Department and LifeNet were dispatched to the Days Inn on Central Avenue January 7,2021, for the call of a bomb in a motel room.

Officers that were investigating the situation were told that a woman came into a business office on West St. Louis Street screaming to call 911.  This female said that a man had a bomb in a specific room at the motel.  The female departed the area and the 911 call was made.

Officers soon determined that there was no bomb at the motel.

The female that reported the bomb to the business office soon arrived at the police department.  Jeanine Marie Salzman, 58, homeless in Hot Springs (and well known to HSPD..CLICK HERE to see our last report on her), was rambling on incoherently about things.  Police had difficulty communicating with her.  She was not able to provide any reasonable explanation of why she believed that a bomb was in the hotel room.  She told officers that she had taken a dose of “ICE” meth 45 minutes prior to landing in her state of…….enthusiasm.

Ms. Salzman was arrested and transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing.  She is charged with Communicating A False Alarm with bond set at $1,000.
