    February 21, 2012 No comments

    Authorities evacuated Monrovia High School this morning and delayed opening three other Morgan County secondary schools when a caller to the sheriff’s office said a bomb had been planted.

    The call came into the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department at 7:01 a.m., said a dispatcher. The caller said a bomb would go off in “the high school,” without specifying which one.

    To be cautious, the sheriff informed all four county high schools – Monrovia, Mooresville, Martinsville and Emminence.

    Only Monrovia had let students in already and they were told to leave, the dispatcher said.

    The other high schools have delayed opening. Sheriff’s deputies searched the schools, the dispatcher said, and at 8:30. Monrovia was letting students back in.
