Bomb Threats Stop at Senate Offices

Capitol Police are still investigating bomb threats to five Senate offices, but a spokeswoman said the threats had stopped at about 2 p.m.

Most of those threats were made through phone calls, though at least one came in the form of an e-mail, spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider said. All were made early Wednesday afternoon.

The department did not order any evacuations but asked any offices that received threats to take note of the time, caller ID and wording.

Schneider wouldn’t release any specifics on the threats, citing the ongoing investigation. Officers are dealing with each office “one by one,” she said.
