SUSSEX COUNTY, Del.- Police in Sussex County are investigating three separate bomb threats called into schools and a district business office Monday morning.

Delaware State Police said the first incident occurred at around 10:04 a.m. when an unknown male suspect called the East Millsboro Elementary School and advised that there was a bomb inside the building. School officials tell WBOC students and staff were evacuated to the middle school, while state and Millsboro police along with school administrators conducted a full sweep of the building. Police say nothing suspicious or out of the ordinary was found, and everyone was allowed back into the building.

Seaford police say at 10:15 a.m., their office received a report of a robocall bomb threat made to the St. John's Preschool in Seaford. All students were evacuated to the Seaford Fire Department while the incident was investigated. According to Seaford police, a search of the building turned up nothing, and the school was turned back over to school officials.

The third incident occurred at around 10:26 a.m. when Delaware State Police said an unknown male suspect called the Cape Henlopen School District Business Office in Lewes and advised that there was a bomb. As in the earlier two cases, the building was searched by troopers and staff. Police said staff resumed their daily activities when no real threat was detected.
