Deputies began providing extra security that day and agreed to do so until today, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Debbie Tanna said.

Today, the plant will begin a break from production that will last until Jan. 2.

Tanna said investigators still were trying to determine if the threat was real or a hoax.

Evans said plant officials were working closely with law enforcement, union representatives and corporate security to determine who is responsible for the threat.

He did not reveal any details about the threat, saying it would be inappropriate to comment on specifics during the investigation.

“We are doing what we believe is appropriate to protect the work force,” Evans said. (Tire Review/Akron)
