Fake bomb threat found at Penticton Library

A bomb threat via a note found in the book return slot at the Penticton Library turned out to be a hoax.

A bomb threat via a note found in the book return slot at the Penticton Library turned out to be a hoax.

The note was found on May 7 at 9 a.m. which said “find the bomb by 2 p.m. at (three locations).”

Investigators searched three locations, which RCMP did not disclose, with “substantial resources and disruption to area businesses,” said Cpl. Ted Manchulenko with the Penticton RCMP.

The search turned up nothing and RCMP determined the threat to be a hoax.

The matter is still under investigation by Penticton RCMP who are exploring DNA evidence on the note.

“Although there’s no public concerns at this time relating to safety, it should be noted we’re taking it very seriously,” Manchulenko said.
