BEDFORD, N.H. (AP) — Police in Bedford, New Hampshire, say nothing was found after they searched a high school and middle school complex that canceled classes because of a bomb threat.
Bedford Police Chief John Byfonski says a school administrator received the threat at about 6 a.m. Tuesday. He declined to say how the threat was communicated. WMUR-TV reports police said shortly after noon that nothing was found.
The chief said New Hampshire investigators worked with police in Bedford, Massachusetts, where a similar threat was communicated to school officials. The Massachusetts high school was evacuated and searched as a precaution, but authorities there also said they found nothing dangerous.
In New Hampshire, high school principal Bill Hagen said it was likely a "very bad hoax," but added the schools were closed out of an abundance of caution.
