POLICE BRIEFS: Bomb threat a hoax Teen missing Man located

A bomb threat at Queen Elizabeth Secondary School resulted in a police search for explosives at the North Surrey school.

An anonymous caller reported a bomb at the school at 8:50 a.m. Tuesday.

Police advised school officials to keep students in the building while investigators conducted a search.

Seven RCMP cruisers descended on the school to establish whether an evacuation would be necessary.

RCMP Cpl. Roger Morrow said such threats are a serious issue, and can result in charges of public mischief.

By mid-morning, police had established there was no explosive in the school.
