LIVONIA – The bomb threat received through Livonia Central School’s anonymous tip line, which was almost immediately followed by an apology, is not considered a threat to public safety by the school or investigating law enforcement.
According to a Wednesday Facebook post by Livonia Central Schools, they received an anonymous message at 4:44 p.m. Wednesday targeting the High School facility at a future date. Four minutes later, another anonymous tip came in saying ‘we did not send it on purpose and we are so sorry for the inconvenience.’
“We are conducting a criminal investigation into a bomb threat at the Livonia School in coordination with school officials,” said Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty. “Members of our Road Patrol Division (including our School Resource Deputy assigned to Livonia School and K9 Units), our Criminal Investigations Division and Sheriff’s Command Staff have been investigating. The DA’s office and the NYS Intelligence Center (NYSIC) has been assisting us in filing and searching for IP address information.”
A criminal investigation is ongoing.
A Livingston County Sherriff’s Office “K9 unit swept the school with nothing found.
“We will remain alert and monitor the situation as appropriate throughout the coming days,” posted Livonia Central Schools. “As always, we appreciate your support, understanding, and partnership.”
