Law Enforcement agencies are investigating two bomb threats in as many school days at Calloway County High School. School officials evacuated students around noon Monday and locked down the nearby middle school. Kentucky State Trooper First Class Jay Thomas says the threats were on notes left in a girl’s bathroom.

Thomas says they have some persons of interest, but no suspects. Thomas says the school system received a threat around the same time last year. While there’s no public motive the school systems are administering state tests.  Thomas says law enforcement must take every threat seriously, but he says the repeated threats are frustrating.

Thomas says a bomb sniffing dog was dispatched from Henderson, KY but he wasn’t sure whether or not the investigating officer would need the dog’s service. At the time of the interview Thomas wasn’t clear if student’s would return to the school building before the end of the school day.
