(Atlantic) Atlantic Police Chief Steve Green says the bomb threat at the Atlantic High School Wednesday lacks credibility. Chief Green says after they received the information from Atlantic School Offiicials, he contacted the State Fire Marshall's Office.
"The State Fire Marshall's Office bomb experts say there is a lack of credibility to this incident," says Chief Green. "The message was in written form and basically described future time and date and just read "bomb" nothing other than that."
Chief Green says Atlantic Police, the School Resource Officer, Atlantic Fire Department, and the Atlantic School Officials have decided to be proactive despite the lack of credibility of the message.
"We will be conducting a number of sweep searches at the school and monitoring the coming and going of individuals as they enter the school building, " stated Green. "We want to assure parents that their children are safe and we are do everything possible to make sure school goes on as normal. The last thing we want to do is interrupt the school day and give the person who wrote this message a chance to get out of school.
Atlantic School Administrators were made aware of a possible bomb threat for Friday, October 7.
