State Police investigating more bomb threats

MILLSBORO – Delaware State Police are currently investigating a pair of bomb threats that were called in to a school and a district business office this morning.

The first incident occurred around 10:04 a.m. Monday morning when an unknown male suspect called the East Millsboro Elementary School, located on Iron Branch Road, Millsboro, and advised that there was a bomb inside of the building, according to state police Master Cpl. Gary Fournier.

The school was evacuated and students were transported by busses to a pre-determined location while the Delaware State Police, Millsboro Police Department, and school administration conducted a search.

Nothing out of the ordinary or suspicious was located and staff and students were allowed back to resume their daily activities.

The second incident happened at approximately 10:26 a.m. when an unknown male suspect placed a call to the Cape Henlopen School District Business Office, located on Kings Highway, Lewes, and stated that there was a bomb. The building was searched by troopers and staff.

Again, nothing out of the ordinary or suspicious was located and staff resumed their daily activities, Cpl. Fournier said.

Both incidents remain under investigation by the Delaware State Police. It is unknown if these bomb threats are related to the series of bomb threats which have been occurring throughout the state over the past few weeks.
