A bomb threat – which proved false - caused the evacuation of Manheim Central High School Friday morning.
The school was evacuated about 9 a.m. after a phone call was placed to the district office indicating a bomb was at the high school at 400 East Adele Avenue.
Manheim Borough police responded, along with K-9s from the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and Lancaster city police. Northern Lancaster County Regional police also assisted.
The K-9s and officers swept the building and determined it safe just after 10 a.m. Nothing was found and no one was injured.
Students and staff returned to classes about 10:30 a.m.
Manheim Borough police are leading the investigation into the person or persons involved in the threat. As of Friday afternoon, they were following multiple leads.
Anyone with information about the threat is asked to contact Manheim police at 717-665-2481 or submit a tip via this CrimeWatch page.
The Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office is assisting in the investigation.
