Update: Milan Area Schools Bomb Threat

Feb 26, 2018

Milan Area Schools students will be heading back to school tomorrow after the district received a bomb threat today.

The Milan Police Department has cleared all school buildings of any threat.  Police officers, bomb detecting canines, and school administrators searched the buildings after someone sent an e-mail indicating that multiple devices had been placed in several locations within the district.  As a result, all buildings were evacuated and students were sent home.

Local authorities, along with the FBI, are now investigating the case.  Crime Stoppers of Michigan is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.  You can call 1-800- SPEAK-UP.
