Bomb Threat In School
In the past two weeks, there have been a series of threats made at schools all around Michigan, most recently, in Hazel Park Michigan.
According to the police, they believe a Junior High School teacher is responsible for the threat.
A bomb-threatening note was found on Thursday, February 2nd, in the Hazel Park Junior High School classroom of 40-year-old Paul Jacobs of Livonia. The note said that the school would be blown up the next day.
Police first thought Jacobs saw the note in his classroom but failed to report it. The officers searched the building with their K9 units on Thursday night. No explosives were discovered in or around the school.
At that point, police believed Jacobs planted the note himself with the intention of classes being canceled.
