32 year old Kellie Cameron of Bend has been sentenced to almost two years in federal prison for constructing a hoax bomb and phoning in a threat to blow up the Deschutes County Courthouse in July of last year.  Cameron will also have to pay $43 thousand dollars in restitution and will be on three years supervised released after serving the prison term in a federal lockup for 21 months.  Federal authorities  say Cameron conspired with Jonathan Allen of Bend - a co-defendant in the case - at the end of July in 2019, to shut down the Deschutes County Courthouse in Bend by planting a fake bomb made of batteries, wiring, a circuit board, and a fuel filter and calling in the threat after placing the device on a ramp near the courthouse.  The threat shut down and prompted the evacuation of the courthouse, the D-A’s office, a bank, and several businesses in the area until the bomb squad to get to the scene and dismantle the device.  In August of last year, Cameron and Allen were both charged - Cameron pled guilty.
