CAMDEN, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a bomb threat made Wednesday morning at Caesar Rodney High School in Camden.
Troopers said the incident occurred around 7:03 a.m., when an unknown person sent an email to the school's website stating there was a bomb in the school and it would detonate at 11a.m. According to police, the school's Web administrator did not check the emails until shortly after 9 a.m., at which time he alerted the high school administration.
Students were evacuated from the building and eventually bused to local schools in the district. Police K9s from DSP, Delaware Capitol Police and the Dover Police Department were called in to search the building, which was eventually cleared with nothing out of the ordinary found.
The school was reopened and students were allowed back at approximately 1:15 p.m.
