Another Threat Made Against Calaveras County Schools

Another Threat Made Against Calaveras County Schools 

Another threat against Calaveras County Schools has turned out to be a hoax. Late yesterday afternoon the Calaveras County Office of Education (CCOE) notified the Sheriff’s Department, that a communication, characterized as “a generalized email bomb threat,” had been received. After talking with FBI Officials, Calaveras County Sheriff Rick Dibasilio reported that the threat towards Calaveras County Schools checked out as a hoax. Yesterday’s email was sent to County schools superintendent Scott Nanik, and apparently originated from the same UK-based twitter group that last month was behind a series of generalized nationwide emails. What appeared to be a basic cut-and-paste message threatened an on-campus incident without naming any specific target location or providing additional details. Nanik said that while the threat turned out to be non-credible, an increased law enforcement presence will still be noticeable at county schools this week, adding that the presence will serve to calm things on campuses and perhaps also dissuade potential local copycats from acting out. If anyone discovers anything that might assist in the investigation you should contact either local law officials or CCOE immediately.
