Authorities evacuated an Anaconda middle school Wednesday after a bomb threat.
School employees found the word “bomb” scrawled on a bathroom wall, Anaconda Police Chief Tim Barkell said. Police evacuated Fred Moodry Middle School and searched the building, not finding any explosives.
Barkell said they have two possible suspects.
Nothing else suspicious was found during a walk through of the school. Barkell said police will review surveillance video as part of an ongoing investigation.
School officials have offered a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the culprit.
An employee reported the threat at 10:54 a.m.
Barkell said his officers dealt with a similar incident last week at Lincoln Elementary School. In that case, the perpetrator spelled the word “bom,” leading police to believe the threat wasn’t legitimate.
