Police: Bomb threat at elementary was unfounded

Mar 20, 2012 - Staff

Authorities say a bomb threat reported at Aspen Park Elementary School Monday afternoon in Riverton was unfounded. Riverton police Capt. C.T. Smith said officers were at the scene for roughly 15 to 20 minutes, but a bomb squad was not required. Police received the call at 1:01 p.m. Students were evacuated but returned to the building soon afterward. An ambulance bus and the Riverton Fire Volunteer Department also responded to the call as a precaution.
