More On Bomb Threat

It’s now been learned that a bomb threat that was scrawled on the wall in the Edon North­west Local School build­ing was behind the shut-down of the school Wednes­day after­noon.

The Bryan Times reports that police say the threat was dis­cov­ered by a stu­dent around 12:30 Wednes­day. Police were imme­di­ately called in and they evac­u­ated the build­ing.

Stu­dents were sent home around 1:45. All ath­letic events that were sched­uled for Wednes­day night had to be can­celled.

Bomb sniff­ing dogs were brought in from the Toledo Police depart­ment. They made a com­plete sweep of the build­ing and then the threat was called off later Wednes­day night after no explo­sives were turned up.

Now, local, state, and fed­eral author­i­ties are inves­ti­gat­ing. So far, no arrests have been made.
