Another bomb hoax hits Brown County

Brown County authorities received another bomb threat Friday, a case that may be tied to last month’s hoax that scrambled rescue workers in the county.

According to the Brown County sheriff’s department, deputies were called to the high school Friday morning on a report of a bomb. After the building was evacuated and searched, authorities are confident it was a fake report.

And authorities say the person responsible is also believed to have been involved in last month’s incident where a threat was called in about a fake bomb and sniper at a county restaurant. In that incident, authorities believe the person behind the hoax was watching authorities respond via the feeds from online cameras in the area.

The case remains under investigation.
