Chino Valley High School evacuates twice after threats

FINAL REPORT:

Two threatening phone calls prompted separate evacuations at Chino Valley High School on Tuesday.

School officials evacuated the campus in the morning after 911 received a call about a bomb threat. According to a press release from Chino Valley Unified School District Superintendent Duane Noggle, the threat indicated an explosive device was on the high school campus.

School officials conducted an orderly evacuation of the school, and law enforcement officers arrived with a bomb-sniffing K-9 unit.

Officers found no explosive device during an extensive search of the campus.

Students returned to their normal schedule at about 12:45 p.m., but a second bomb threat prompted another evacuation at the high school and resulted in the cancellation of all after-school activities.

Detective Brian Sanders of the Chino Valley Police Department could not comment on suspects or leads in the case while the investigation continues.

UPDATE:

A second call prompted a second evacuation at the high school, the Chino Valley Review is reporting. The threat was "non-specific" and resulted in cancelation of all after-school activities.
