Bomb threat Tuesday morning forces evacuation at Idaho school

Wilder Middle/High School was evacuated Tuesday morning in response to a bomb threat on campus, according to Wilder police, but there was no device and the school was eventually deemed safe.

Police and school authorities said they identified and interviewed the students behind the threat and do not believe there is any threat to the community.

At approximately 9:36 a.m., the Wilder Police Department received the reports and cleared the school, per district protocol. A Nampa Police Department K-9 was brought in to help sniff out any potential bomb. The school was “cleared and ... able to return to normal status,” Wilder police said.

No further details were available.
