CALDWELL — Police did not find any explosives or other suspicious activity after bomb threats forced evacuations of three Caldwell schools.
An elementary and middle school in Caldwell received a bomb threat Tuesday morning, as police were still searching through a high school that received an earlier threat.
The first threat was made against Vallivue High School at 9:42 a.m., according to Caldwell Police Sgt. Chad Sloan. Students and staff were evacuated from the school as the Nampa bomb squad checked for any suspicious activity or devices.
But as police worked to clear the high school, two more bomb threats were made, this time against Jefferson Middle School and Washington Elementary School.
Police originally identified Wilson Elementary as one of the schools that was threatened, but said later that the threat was made against Washington Elementary.
Sloan said those calls were made at about 11:20 a.m. He said the three calls were "absolutely" made by the same person. The bomb threat was made during a 911 call, he said.
The calls were likely the work of a prankster, Sloan said.
