  • WPD: Nothing Found After Hendricken Bomb Threat

    [CREDIT: ercbna.org] Bishop Hendricken School canceled classes Wednesday, Dec. 5 after a bomb threat. Classes resume today as normal.

    WARWICK, RI  — Bishop Hendricken High School cancelled classes early Wednesday morning after an employee found a note describing a bomb threat near the cafeteria and called police at about 6:10 a.m., but no explosives were discovered.

    The school announced all classes and activities are continuing as scheduled for today.

    Warwick Police arrived at the school and spoke to the person who had found the note. Officers located a backpack that could not be accounted for.

    Warwick Police cleared personnel from the school and set up a perimeter, and school officials arrived and cancelled classes for the day.

    Members of the RI State Fire Marshal’s office and State Police were contacted and responded to the school. State Fire Marshal investigators inspected the backpack and declared it safe. An extensive search was then conducted throughout the building by officers and bomb-sniffing K-9 police dogs. Officers and K-9’s did not locate any threats during their search.
