    Authorities say a South Florida woman called in a bomb threat to the Florida Department of Children and Families.

    The Tallahassee Democrat reports that 33-year-old Paulletta Higgins was booked into Miami-Dade County Jail Saturday and charged with falsely reporting a bomb, making harassing phone calls and falsely reporting a crime.

    Court records show Higgins called the state office in Tallahassee in June to request a hearing for refusal of food assistance. Authorities say Higgins, who called DCF about 100 times that day, told employees a bomb was set to go off in five minutes.

    Security officials at the building didn't feel the need to evacuate.

    Higgins remained in jail on an out-of-county warrant. Jail records didn't list an attorney.
