After bomb threat at Mall of NH, police ask public for information
MANCHESTER - Police responded Tuesday night to an apparent bomb threat hoax at the Mall of New Hampshire.
A man notified police at about 8:30 p.m. about a note written on a rest room wall claiming there was a bomb inside the mall. Manchester police, with mall security, performed a sweep of the mall. A member of the N.H. State Police Explosives Unit, along with a bomb dog assigned to the Transportation Security Administration at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, assisted in the search.
The man who reported the written threat left the mall before he could be identified. Police describe him as a white male, in his 50s, about 5-feet-5-inches tall, 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a long-sleeved shirt and tan or brown work boots. He had short, dark and graying hair.
Police are still investigating the source of the threat, hoping to identify its origin.
