Alhambra High School bomb scare ends

Today's bomb threat at Alhambra High School ended with no bomb being found.

This morning at 11:40 a.m., someone called in a bomb threat. School officials notified the school police officer, who notified the Alhambra police dispatch, said Sgt. Jerry Johnson, a spokesman with the Alhambra Police Department.

A thorough search was conducted, which included three canine teams, but they found no explosive device on campus, Johnson said.

The campus was declared safe at 2:30 p.m., Johnson said, which was close to the regular end of the school day. The students, who were waiting on the track field, were allowed to leave at that point.

It’s a crime to call in a bomb threat whether or not a bomb is actually found, so a criminal investigation is underway, Johnson said.
