Frederick, Md (KM) Bomb Threats were reported at two schools in Frederick County Wednesday morning.

The Sheriff’s Office says students were evacuated safely while deputies conducted a sweep of  Crestwood Middle School.    At around 10:45 AM, the threat was  deemed not credible and all students and staff were allowed back inside.

There was also a bomb threat at West Frederick Middle School.  Frederick Police say that  school was evacuated while officers  conducted a sweep.  They say the  threat was also deemed not credible.

Frederick Police say investigations are underway to determine the origin of these  calls.  They say similar threats were reported at other Maryland schools.

Earlier that day, the Sheriff’s Office  reminded citizens to expect  a large police presence at Crestwood Middle  School  due to the bomb threat. They urged parents not to come to the school  during that time, and said that the Sheriff’s Office was working with the School System to make sure all students were safe.

The School System says both threats were made over the telephone.
