16 Dec

DURANGO – Bomb threats against a number of public buildings in La Plata County on Wednesday morning has forced authorities to require several evacuations.

Durango Police say its dispatch received an anonymous bomb threat against the courthouse, Fort Lewis College, Miller Middle School and Durango High School just before 10 a.m.

Local law enforcement is working to conduct searches of each building, however, because no specific name was given for the courthouse, police have notified all judicial buildings in the area.

The Durango School District evacuated Miller Middle School students and Durango High School students to safe off-campus locations. Parents were able to pick up their children with proper identification.

All other schools in the district were put into a soft lockdown, meaning external doors were locked.

The campus at Fort Lewis College was evacuated as well and planned to remain closed for the day.
