Boulder's Jewish Community Center receives bomb threat

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say Boulder's Jewish Community Center received a bomb threat for the second time in fewer than two months.

Police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly tells The Daily Camera (https://goo.gl/lXLJMt ) the center received the emailed threat just before midnight Tuesday, but a sweep of the facility determined the threat was not credible. The center was open Wednesday morning.

It also received a threat on the morning of Jan. 31, when an automated phone call about a bomb prompted the evacuation of the facility. Cordingly says there is no evidence that the two threats are related, and there are no suspects in either case.
