Bomb Scare at Upper Perkiomen Middle School
Written by Larry Roeder, Editor
2013-04-05

 

 

         Upper Perk police officers responded to the Upper Perkiomen Middle School around 2:30 Friday afternoon for the report of a “bomb threat” at the facility.  All students were evacuated safely.

            According to a notice posted on the Upper Perkiomen School District’s website, “Late this afternoon, a possible bomb threat was discovered on a bathroom wall at our middle school.  Students were dismissed a few minutes early and Upper Perkiomen Police Department was contacted.  State, County, and Local authorities conducted a complete and thorough search with trained K-9s throughout the entire building.  The building was declared safe.  School activities will resume as normal on Monday, April 8.”  The writing was found in a girl’s bathroom.

            A similar incident occurred at the Middle School in April of 2008, where the message of a threat was scrawled on the wall in a girl’s bathroom.

            In addition to Upper Perk Police, officers from Marlborough, New Hanover, Douglass, State Police, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Squad and Pennsburg Fire Police also responded.  Units from the East Greenville Fire Company were on standby at the scene.

            The incident is under investigation by the Upper Perk Police District.  Anyone with information is asked to call police at (215) 679-8203.
