Local Bomb threats found not credible

Press Release, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office

On December 13, 2018, two area businesses, and one local fire department reported they had received bomb threats.  The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded and checked the buildings, and no devices were located.  

At this time, the bomb threats which were received via email, appear to be part of a national trend to extort money from businesses and are not considered credible threats.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office encourages the public to remain vigilant and to promptly report suspicious activity.
