Bridgewater: Bomb scare turns out to be false alarm

According to Bridgewater police, nothing was found at Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School after a bomb threat was called in just after 10a.m. Thursday.

The high school was evacuated and three bomb sniffing K-9 units  from the state police and the Quincy Police Department performed a search inside the school and outside.

No devices turned up but it was discovered that there was a mechanical problem with the fire alarm.

Due to the lengthy K-9 search and time needed to fix the fire alarm, students were released one-hour early.

Bridgewater police say the bomb threat is under investigation.
