DECEMBER 13, 2018 (LINCOLN, NEB.) — Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) and many other agencies have responded to several bomb threats in communities around Nebraska today. No devices have been found and the threats are believed to be associated with others reported through the nation today.
The Nebraska Information Analysis Center (NIAC), led by NSP, has been in contact with the FBI as well as law enforcement agencies in numerous other states since the first reports of bomb threats in the region.
At this point, there are no reports that any explosive device has been found associated with these threats. NSP is aware of numerous threats made in Omaha, Lincoln, McCook, Peru, Fremont, Falls City, and Dewitt. None of those threats are deemed to be credible.
NSP and NIAC are working with federal authorities to determine the origin of the threats.
McCook City Manager Nate Schneider says the McCook Police Department received reports of two bomb threats. The threats were sent via email to McCook Elementary School and to the Horse Creek Inn. The McCook Police Department, Red Willow County Sheriff’s Office and Nebraska State Patrol responded to both locations. The bomb threats were determined to be unfounded after searches at both locations.
