Hoax bomb threat at LHS, schools across the nation

Yesterday, Wednesday, Feb. 28, Lassen High School received an anonymous bomb threat by email, as did many other schools across the country.

The message, similar to a wave of hoax threats in 2023, does not appear to be a credible threat at this tine.

Nevertheless, the Susanville Police Department and LHS are not dismissing the message and encourage our citizens to remain vigilant to suspicious persons or activity.

The Susanville Police Department began investigating the matter and contacted the FBI in that effort.

The FBI is aware of the threat and advised that the same message was sent to other institutions across the nation.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Warner at (530) 257-5603.
