GREENSBURG – A bomb threat scrawled on a bathroom wall at a local manufacturing plant drew the attention of police and fire crews Friday afternoon.
Greensburg Chief of Police Stacey Chasteen told the Daily News her department responded to GECOM alongside the Greensburg Fire Department Friday afternoon following notification that morning that a bomb was set to detonate at 2 p.m.
New Point Town Marshal Andy Hadler, who also works as GECOM’s quality manager, discovered the threat and informed the GPD of the time the alleged device was intended to explode.
Two safety sweeps of the building were completed by GECOM personnel after a fire alarm was intentionally triggered in order to discreetly remove all associates from the plant.
The safety sweeps found nothing out of the ordinary and production continued as normal throughout the rest of the afternoon, Chasteen said.
GECOM representatives could not be reached for comment by Daily News press time Monday.
Chasteen said the case remains under investigation.
