This morning at 7:16 a.m., police received a call about a bomb threat at Cole Harbour District High School. The call was in the form of a computerized voice message. Members of Halifax District RCMP and a Halifax Regional Police K-9 team trained in the detection of explosives responded.
In consultation with the Halifax Regional School Board, the decision was made to evacuate Cole Harbour District High School to nearby Cole Harbour Place. A sweep of the school was done, and the threat was found not to be credible. Students were able to return to the school at approximately 9:30 a.m.
As a precautionary measure, members of Halifax District RCMP attended other schools in the Cole Harbour area and requested they pay particular attention to their surroundings today and contact police immediately if they see anything suspicious.
The investigation is ongoing.
