No Bomb Found, But Police Increase Patrols in Vicinity
LEONARDTOWN, Md. - The St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office this afternoon reported that on Monday, April 16, Sheriff's Office Deputies responded to the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) for the report of a "Bomb Threat." It is not currently known to us how the threat was made.
So far, we have been unable to reach the officer in charge of the incident to obtain more details. However, in a released statement, police stated, "once on the scene, evidence was located and seized."
Police also say that a Sheriff's Office K-9, training in locating explosives, scanned the campus and buildings "with negative results."
We are led to believe that a threat still exists based on the following statement from police: "Leonardtown Deputy Ronald Maloy has increased his patrol of the campus as the investigation continues."
We'll bring you more information as we learn it.
