CHATHAM, Ill. (WRSP) -- The Chatham Police Department is asking for your help finding the person responsible for threatening Glenwood High School two days in a row.
Police say they have completed an interview with a student they are calling a person of interest, but the investigation is still in progress. That person of interest was connected to two separate threats to the school on Wednesday and Thursday. Both threats were written on the wall.
The threat Wednesday caused a soft lockdown for several hours. The second threat caused an evacuation.
Several agencies responded with bomb dogs to make sure the school was safe Thursday. Chatham police say the large response was necessary given the size of the high school.
"These schools are very large," Deputy Chatham Police Chief Scott Tarter said. "We need to call in extra manpower for help and assistance for searching for the items. And then also, specialty positions such as a trained bomb dog, which Chatham Police Department does not have. So we called in other agencies, Secretary of State which assists us with things like that, those specialties."
Police determined neither of the two threats to be credible. The Chatham Police Department says making a bomb threat at a school is a felony.
