Police searching for caller after bomb threat called in for two schools Monday

(Continued)

"At 10:28 a.m. the school was taken off lockdown, after being cleared by three (bomb-sniffing) dogs." Falls Police Superintendent Bryan DalPorto said. "They found nothing."

Sources told the Gazette that the police agencies involved believed the threat was "probably not credible" after the 911 call was received. Nonetheless, they activated an emergency response to make sure that students were safe.

Falls district officials dealt with a second threat issued Monday when an anonymous call was placed to Hyde Park Elementary at 12:18 p.m. According to Glaser, a lockdown of the building was initiated and lasted until 12:48 p.m., when staff and students were given the all-clear.

Officials were unclear whether the threat was related to the ones made to the two high school buildings or an isolated incident.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
