SIERRA VISTA - Students were evacuated from Imagine Charter School, and it was closed for the day after students found a note on the wall of the boy's bathroom stating there was a bomb in a classroom.
The students advised the teacher of the note, which stated there was a bomb in a classroom set to go off at a specific time. The teacher reported the incident to the principal, who called the Sierra Vista Police, according to a news release from the SVPD. Officers secured the scene, and assisted in evacuating the students to Calvary Chapel Church across the street.
Several Military Police K-9 units from Fort Huachuca searched the school grounds and interior, but no bomb device was located, the release states. For the safety of students and staff, the school remained closed for the day.
The case in still under investigation, and anyone with information is asked to contact Cpl. Nicola at SVPD: 520-452-7500.
