Immediate Response by
Big Bear Sheriff and
Baldwin Lane Elementary School classrooms and grounds in
Sugarloaf were the scene of a Bomb Threat Investigation, yesterday (Tuesday May
23, 2017) afternoon, by Big Bear Sheriff and Deputies. The
Big Bear Sheriff Station Dispatch was alerted 2:18 P.M., by Baldwin
Lane Elementary School officials of a Bomb Threat. The School received a call
at approximately 2:10 P.M. from what sounded like a male subject trying to
disguise his voice, saying that bombs had been planted in classrooms.
Classes were in session at the time the threat was
received. Baldwin Lane Elementary School officials
worked quickly to evacuate approximately 400 students and faculty members to
the parking lot and outlying playground. Immediate response by the Sheriff Deputies to
the Sugarloaf School ensued a full investigation of the entire area and community.
Multiple Law Enforcement units responded to the 9-1-1 call for service and worked
as a team to conduct a systematic and thorough search of the inside and outside
of the school. At approximately 3:20 P.M.,
a sweep of the entire school’s premises was concluded as Deputies found no
suspicious persons or packages at the school.
Anyone having information as to the identity of
the caller is requested to contact the Big Bear Sheriff’s Station at (909)
866-0100. Reports can also be made
anonymously by calling WE-TIP at (800)
78-CRIME or online at www.wetip.com.
