Monday, February 27, 2017 at 10:08 hours the Jewish Community Center, 2000 Hollywood Dr. York Township, received a phone call from person with what sounded like a male ‘robotic voice’ advising of a bomb inside of the JCC building.
The JCC implemented their emergency plans and evacuated the building. York Area Regional Police responded to search the building with the help of the York Co. Sheriff’s Office and the CSX railroad police K9 units to search the building. The building was searched with negative results. The building was cleared at 12:15 and turned over to the JCC staff to resume operations as they deemed appropriate.
York Area Regional Police and the JCC had met earlier this year to discuss these threats that may occur based upon recent national incidents that have been reported.
The Police Department takes this bomb threat seriously and will be investigating in an attempt to identify the actor(s) involved.
