Officials accuse a 51-year-old San Antonio grandmother of phoning a bomb threat to an elementary school that wouldn't let her visit her grandchildren.

The state jail Web site says Velma Gladys Brewster was free on bond Friday after being charged with making a terrorist threat to Windcrest Elementary School. More than 700 students and faculty members evacuated the campus Thursday after school officials received a threatening voicemail.

No explosives were found. A phone message left at Brewster's home Friday was not returned, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

Police said Brewster didn't have permission from her daughter to visit her grandchildren at the school.
