A bomb threat received by telephone this morning prompted the evacuation of Fort Bragg’s City Hall and the immediate area. After a thorough search, authorities did not locate any explosive devices and are conducting an ongoing investigation. 

Fort Bragg Police Chief Neil Cervenka told us that the dispatch center got a call around 10:40 a.m. today that there were explosive devices in the area of Fort Bragg’s City Hall. 

The phone call prompted an immediate evacuation of that area.

Chief Cervenka said law enforcement set quickly to conduct a thorough search of the grounds that did not turn up any explosives.

Now that the immediate concerns have been addressed, Chief Cervenka said investigators are looking into the caller who relayed the bomb threat. He declined to provide any specifics beyond that to protect the integrity of the investigation
