Bomb threat at Emmett O'Brien proves to be hoax

ANSONIA — Emmett O’Brien Technical HIgh School was evacuated Monday morning after a report of an alleged bomb threat, Lt. Andrew Cota said.

The police department received a phone call from the principal about an alleged bomb threat, he said.

Upon arrival officers met with school personnel and learned someone in the school had written the words “There is a bomb in this school” on the wall in a hallway on the first floor.

The school was evacuated.
Cota said Connecticut State Police were called to the scene because the school is a state technical school.

Upon the arrival of state police the emergency services unit was notified and a sweep of the school was conducted, he said.

No suspicious items were located within the building and no other threats were received, Cota said.

The case is being investigated by the Connecticut State Police.

No arrests were made, Cota said.
