Police Ask Your Help in Solving Rash of Bomb Threats

Posted: Updated:

  Greater Grand Forks police are trying to stop a recent rash of bomb threats.

  There have now been 3 of them within the last week. But, all of them have turned out to be hoaxes.

  It's costing retail stores money and wasting law enforcement's time.

  Last Monday, a bomb threat was called into the Grand Forks Sam's Club-Walmart and forced an evacuation, until the buildings were checked out.

  Saturday, another bomb threat at Hugo's grocery store along Gateway Drive, and Sunday, another one at the Hugo's store in East Grand Forks. Police found nothing suspicious at any of the stores.

Lt. Rod Hajicek, East Grand Forks Police: "Male called into Hugo's yesterday and indicated there was a bomb in the building. Officers responded, along with Fire and Border Patrol."

And police are warning… whoever is making these bomb threats, that it's no minor crime. It's a felony with serious consequences.

Lt. Dwight Love, Grand Forks Police: "It's a serious offense. It's a felony. You can go to jail for a long time for something you think may be a hoax."

  Police say tracing those bomb threat phone calls takes time, but they're working on it. In the meantime, they'd like your help.

Lt. Dwight Love: "If you know of somebody that thinks it's funny to do bomb threats or they're bragging about doing them, call us at 787-8000. Let us follow up on it and see if we can find out who did this."
