Coming on the heels of Tuesday’s handgun incident at the Rawlins K2-5 classroom building, an elementary school in Wheatland experienced a scare of its own yesterday. A bomb threat cleared the West Elementary School for a time Thursday. Around 11:30 a.m., the Wheatland Police Department requested a bomb sniffing K-9 unit from the Wyoming Highway Patrol after a threat to the West Elementary school was received.
The patrol said in a statement that the threat was specific to the school. Students were moved to another campus. The Wyoming Highway Patrol reports that no suspicious devices were located. Students and staff were allowed to return to the building around 1:45 p.m. The Wheatland Police Department is investigating the threat.
