A Maine woman missing her main man hatched a crazy plan for the pair to see more of each other – but the scheme seems to have had the opposite effect.

Kayla Blake is accused of calling in bomb threats to her boyfriend’s workplace last week to get him sent home and back into her arms.

The 33-year-old allegedly reported two separate threats to State Police on Thursday morning in phonecalls spaced just hours apart, the Portland Press Herald reported.

In her first call, made around 9:30 a.m., Blake allegedly threatened to plant an explosive device at Puritan Medical Products in Pittsfield, where her boyfriend works.

In a second call to police two hours later, she allegedly said that she intended to place four pipe bombs around the medical maufacturing facility.

Blake’s boyfriend was among some 400 workers evacuated or told not to come in as both of the company’s Pittsfield plants were forced to shut down for the day.

Yet despite accomplishing its aim, the questionable scheme soon unraveled.

Investigators were able to trace the calls to the nearby town of Etna, where Blake lives, Pittsfield Police Chief Harold Bickmore told the newspaper.

Blake reportedly confessed when cops began interviewing residents in her neighborhood, explaining that she had made the empty threats to get her boyfriend sent home for the day.

Ironically, the lovesick ruse means Blake will have to make do with seeing less of her beau for the time being.

She was charged with felony terrorizing and is being held on $1,500 bail.
