Elementary School Evacuated after Bomb Threat

CERES — Sinclear Elementary School was evacuated Tuesday because of a bomb threat, according to Ceres Police.

Police said in a Facebook post just afternoon that fire and school officials were searching the campus for any suspicious items. Investigators later said the only “suspicious” item found was an unattended trombone case.

Students were said to be safe, escorted off campus out of an abundance of caution to Central Valley High School where parents can pick them up.

People were asked to stay out of the area until the all clear was given around 1:50 p.m.

This is a developing story.
