CAMDEN and WOODSIDE, Del.- Delaware State Police in Kent County are investigating bomb threats made Friday morning at Caesar Rodney and Polytech high schools.
According to police, the first incident occurred at around 7:19 a.m. Friday when an unknown person sent an email to the Caesar Rodeny High School website stating there were explosives inside and outside the school located in Camden. The Web administrator checked the school emails at around 8:20 a.m., at which time he alerted the high school administration.
Students were evacuated from the building and eventually dismissed for the day. Police K9s from DSP and Delaware Capitol Police were called in to search the building, which was cleared at 12:40 p.m. after nothing out of the ordinary was found.
At approximately 11:55 a.m. a bomb threat was phoned into the administrative office of Polytech High School in Woodside. State troopers and Capitol Police K9s conducted a search of school. Authorities said nothing out of the ordinary was located and the school was reopened at around 3 p.m.
Friday's bomb threat at Caesar Rodney was the second one in two days for the school. Caesar Rodney School District Superintendent Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald said that since state troopers were investigating the latest threat, he made the decision to cancel the remainder of the school day for the students of the high school.
This investigation is continuing into the bomb threats. Anyone with information on any of the incidents is asked to contact Detective Jones at (302) 697-4454 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Information may also be provided via www.tipsubmit.com
