VOORHEESVILLE – Staff and students had to shelter in place after an alleged bomb threat on a note was found at around 10:20 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15 in a female restroom at the Voorheesville Central School District’s combined Middle School-High School, according to Albany County Sheriff Craig D. Apple Sr.
The Albany County Sheriff’s School Resource Officer was immediately informed. According to a press release sent out at 12:29 p.m., several units from the Albany Country Sheriff’s Patrol Division, Criminal Investigations, and three K9 Explosive detection teams arrived at the scene. However, the bomb threat note was determined to not be credible during a preliminary investigation while the school building was still being cleared.
Students were then able to resume classes at around 12:15 p.m., according to VCSD Superintendent Brian Hunt.
An investigation is ongoing by school administrators while criminal charges are pending for now. Anyone with information regarding the bomb threat note or the situation overall should call the Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Unit at 518-765-2351.
