According to the Bremer County Sheriff’s Department, on December 10, 2014 at 8:17 PM a subject walked into the Bremer County Sheriff’s Office and reported he had information regarding a possible bomb threat to the Janesville High School and the Cedar Falls High School. The report indicated the event was to occur December 16, 2014 at 7:30 AM.
Based on the information received, an investigation was opened. The Janesville High School was notified by the Bremer County Sheriff’s Office through their School Resource Officer. The Bremer County Sheriff’s Office also notified the Cedar Falls Police Department regarding the threat.
The reporting party was contacted and interviewed. The reporting party did provide investigators with the name of the individual who allegedly made the comments regarding this threat.
Investigators from Bremer County then met up with the Cedar Falls Police Department, and together they notified the Cedar Falls High School administration. The person who was reported to have made these statements was then located and interviewed. This person was very cooperative with officers. At that point it appeared there was limited credibility to the threat, however, both the Cedar Falls High and Janesville High School staff were updated about the investigation. That same afternoon, the Janesville Police Department was also notified of the threat and the investigation.
Even though the threat appeared to have limited credibility, on the morning of December 16, officers from both Bremer County Sheriff’s Office and the Janesville Police Department were on site at the Janesville High School as an extra precaution. No problems were encountered.
No names are being released at this time as the investigation remains ongoing, law enforcement said.
