Bomb threats made at Orofino High School

OROFINO, Idaho - Orofino police responded to bomb threats at Orofino High School on Monday and Tuesday this week.

All of the threats consisted of written threats in the rest rooms at the school. 4 bomb threats have been made so far in the school year. The first 2 threats were found in a girls restroom and the last 2 were found in the boys restroom. 

Police are working with school officials to find a suspect. They are using hallway video along with statements from witnesses to find when the threats were written in the restrooms, to narrow down possible suspects.

Staff from the school, along with community members, have put money toward a reward to find a suspect. The reward is up to around $300, and includes a $200 gift card for Just Brew It. Donations for the reward are still being accepted.

Anyone with information about the bomb threats is asked to contact the Orofino Police Department at 208-476-5551.
