No bomb found after threat note discovered in boys' room at Platt Middle School in Boulder County

BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. - The Boulder County bomb squad was called to Platt Middle School Thursday after a bomb-threat note was found in a boys' bathroom, but authorities said no device was found.

School staff called the Boulder County Sheriff's Office at 10:20 a.m. to report that a teacher had found a note in one of the boys' bathrooms. The note indicated there was a bomb in the school office area, sheriff's Cmdr. Heidi Prentup said in a news release.

Bomb squad members, deputies along with school staff and Boulder Valley School District security staff did a sweep of the office area, but didn't find any suspicious items, Prentup said.

The incident remains under investigation.
