North Dakota school threats may have originated overseas

BISMARCK, N. D. – Authorities say bomb threats against a North Dakota high school might have originated in foreign countries.

Four threats Monday and Tuesday forced several evacuations at Legacy High School in Bismarck. Police chief Dan Donlin says the suspects demanded an undisclosed amount of money for a period of at least two calls. Two other calls seem to be copycats.

Plenty of computer-generated robocall threats reported at schools in the united states and in other countries in recent years, some tied to foreign accounts.

Police spokesman Mark Buschena (boo-SHEE’-nuh) said Thursday that the calls to the Legacy created by a real person. But whether the person was abroad or with a foreign account is still subject of research.

The FBI, which helps to investigate, declined comment, citing the ongoing investigation.
