The police booking photo of a woman arrested in connection with a terror threat on a Maryland hospital may be the most eerie image in mugshot history.
Tolulope Oluwakorede Adetayo was arrested on August 12, on a warrant for Threat of Mass Violence.
Prince George's County police investigating a bomb threat that had been called into a local hospital on August 8.
After an unknown person, who police to believe to have been Adetayo, called the hospital to make the threat, the call taker asked the caller to repeat herself, at which point she reiterated that she intended to blow up the hospital.
Inquiries led police to Adetayo’s address in Landover, Maryland. While deputies were initially told she was not at home, a search revealed that she was hiding in a cupboard.
Police say Adetayo was removed from the cupboard, served with the warrant, placed into custody, and safely transported to the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections in Upper Marlboro, MD, where she posed for this distinctly creepy mugshot.
She is now currently being held without bond, according to online court records.

While Adetayo’s photo suggests a somewhat excessively relaxed outlook, at the other end of the scale, Nicholas Ruthenberg, who was arrested on September 3 in Vero Beach Florida, seemed altogether more lively in his official police booking portrait.
Ruthenberg, who yelled “All hail Donald Trump” as police attempted to arrest him for a motoring offence, had been married earlier that day.
Police say Ruthenberg was acting erratically and “appeared as if he were under the influence of an unknown substance”.
His blood alcohol was zero, but after later agreeing to undergo a drug evaluation, Ruthenberg “began acting erratic again and was out of control”.
Ruthenberg was seen to be struggling with jail personnel as they attempted to take his mug shot.
Ruthenberg, who is a registered Democrat, according to Florida voter records, was charged with Driving Under The Influence and leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury. He was released from the county jail Wednesday after posting a $2000 bond.
