HANOVER, VA (WWBT)- A bomb threat was found Friday on a student's desk at Chickahominy Middle School in Hanover. Investigators don't believe the threat is credible, but a letter was sent to parents to let them know what had happened.
Hanover dad Greg Mack said he appreciates the school keeping him in the loop. He's also grateful for the teacher's watchful eye.
"The schools really keep you informed about what's going on," said Mack. "I think it's a good thing, because we have become really complacent."
State and local police are on heightened alert in the wake of the tragedies in Boston and Connecticut. Investigators say, that's because the public is more sensitive to their surroundings.
